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

A loan helped to buy high-quality seeds to improve her horticulture farm yields and profits to support her children till they successfully graduate from school.

Nancy's story

Kerugoya is a region with undeniable scenic beauty in the heart of Central Kenya. It is the home to many smallholder farmers, Nancy (pictured above) being amongst them. She started farming nine years ago on a small plot she acquired. On the farm, she has dairy cows and a small garden. Filled with determination to better her family's conditions, while not being deterred by her marital and financial status, Nancy has decided to expand her existing farm.

Nancy is kindly seeking a loan to buy seed and expand her horticulture farming. She will have an easy time transporting her horticulture products to the market because of favourable weather and road conditions. Loans are hard to come by in Kenya for small farmers with little, irregular income and no solid collateral. A few organizations, such as Juhudi Kilimo, support farmers like Nancy. Through this loan, Nancy's dream of seeing her children graduate from school will be achieved.
