Jacklyne's story

Jackline (pictured above) is a woman with an unending desire to achieve. She hails from a remote village in the Kitale area of Kenya, where farming has been embraced as the only primary economic activity. Jackline has never shifted her attention away from farming but has always worked hard to meet her set objectives. Jackline enjoys generating an income through selling her harvest, which makes her feel accomplished. To her, labor is not a major challenge, but she finds the cost of farming inputs very high.

Before joining Juhudi Kilimo, Jackline could not access loans from banks, since she is a woman and a smallholder farmer. She joined Juhudi Kilimo and learned about loan management and agribusiness. She also got to learn about Kiva.

Jackline is seeking a loan to purchase farm inputs (fertilizers, pesticides and herbicides). With your loan, she will make an improvement on the quality of her output. This will boost her income and enable her to pay school fees for her children. Jackline awaits your kindness.

She is very thankful in advance for you taking your precious time to read her profile and hopes for your help and support
