Emily's story

Mothers work hard and sacrifice their energy so that the lives of their children might be better. That is why in this month of March 2018, Juhudi is celebrating mothers all over the world.

Meet Emily, a resourceful mother. She is a rural farmer who hails from the Nyahururu region of Kenya. Emily is married and blessed with children who she loves and cares for.

Emily has always had a passion for farming and especially milking her cows. She has applied for this loan in order to buy farming inputs such as certified seeds and nutrient-rich fertilizer to boost the quality of her produce, increase her profits and elevate her standard of living. Modern farming requires the use of modern techniques. She uses certified seeds on her farm but she does not use fertilizers. She has been using mechanical pest and weed control methods. Emily is an idealistic woman, and her goal for this season is to boost her crop production above the level of the previous year. All of this can be achieved with the help and goodwill of lenders.

Emily appreciates your help and understanding and she waits for you to light up her spirit this month.
