Alice's story

Greetings from Nyamira, Kenya!

Meet Alice, a true representative of an “iron woman.” The living conditions in the remote village where she lives are not for cowardly women. Alice gallantly takes care of her home and runs her dairy and crop farming business. For a diligent woman like her, planning is essential for success. Alice loves her family more than anything and this clearly explains why she has never abandoned her responsibilities, even in times of great difficulty. Alice has depended entirely on farming, not only for increasing profits, but also for the opportunity it gives her to make her own decisions.

Alice is seeking a loan to buy farm inputs such as seeds to expand her horticulture farm, where she grows vegetables. In her remote village, loans are hard to get for female smallholder farmers with little and irregular income. Only a few organizations, such as Juhudi Kilimo, support farmers like Alice. Juhudi Kilimo facilitates loans that empower smallholder farmers like Alice because the institution believes that women are good and hardworking farmers too.

Be inspired this planting season and put a smile on the face of a Kenyan woman by kindly granting her a loan!
