Judy's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!


A loan helped to buy a generator to pump water, and a water tank to harvest rain water for home use and to irrigate crops.


Judy's story

Judy is a farmer who is very hard working and very passionate about farming. She is also a mother of lovely children. She hails from the Limuru area of Kenya, a region known for growing maize and beans.

Judy was raised in challenging circumstances and her basic needs were never met. She vowed she would turn her life around and live a comfortable life. That is why she started mixed farming.

Although Judy makes some profit, she has the challenge of inadequate water for irrigating her crops and even for her home consumption. That is why she is kindly requesting a loan to buy a generator that she will use to pump water from the river to her home, and a water tank. Her remote village in Limuru area has no piped water, and this means that she has to travel for long distances in search of “this precious commodity.” With the loan, she will be able to store water for home consumption. The loan will also help Judy irrigate her farm.

The profits from increased production of crops will be used to repay the loan and also to improve her living conditions. Judy also plans to buy more water tanks so that she can harvest as much water as possible.

Judy awaits your kindness.
