Roseline's story

Get to know Roseline, a smallholder farmer practicing dairy, sheep, poultry, and crop farming to make a living. In the Nyamira area of Kenya where Roseline lives, most people depend on agriculture for a living. Roseline loves agriculture as her only way to sustain her humble family.

Although Roseline has only farmed for the past five years, she is working hard and learning good farming practices. Though she has faced many obstacles, that has not been a setback because she has been making great profits in farming. Roseline has always wanted to diversify and start horticulture farming, but the biggest challenge she has been facing is a lack of funds to get the business off the ground.

Roseline is requesting a loan to buy seeds and start horticulture farming. Through Juhudi Kilimo, she will be able to secure a loan. With your loan she intends to buy good-quality vegetable seeds. This loan will improve her living conditions and secure the future of her children. You can help Roseline accomplish all these dreams with a loan, so do it now, and bring her closer to her goals.

Roseline is making a passionate plea for a loan!
