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

A loan helped to buy hybrid seeds and improve her horticulture farming to satisfy the ready market for horticulture products, and eventually improve her living conditions.

Elizabeth's story

Elizabeth is a very smart farmer from a remote village situated in the Nyahururu area of Kenya. The living conditions in this area are tough because there is neither clean water nor electrical connections.

For 11 years, her primary sources of income have been milk, eggs, and horticultural produce. Elizabeth's biggest challenges are disease and a shortage of farm inputs. Farmers in the area lack capital to purchase farm inputs, such as chemicals, to prevent these diseases.

Elizabeth made the decision to join Juhudi Kilimo in order to access loans that would help her improve her farming activities. She is kindly seeking a loan to buy seeds and expand her horticulture farming. Through the loan she will be able to sell horticulture produce to her local market, and markets far away from her home. With your loan, Elizabeth’s children will acquire a quality education that will act as a strong foundation for a bright future.

Help her 2018 second quarter end on a good note.
