Teresia's story

Teresia displays one of the most breathtaking smiles when she remembers her battles with poverty to establish herself.

She is a farmer from Eldoret, a land of seemingly never-ending beauty. Being a single mother, with the responsibility of parenting entirely on her shoulders, Teresia ensures that she gives her children the best.

She has learned a range of new farming techniques that can improve sustainability, enhance resilience, and that are likely to be helpful in adapting to climate change. Her main sources of income include milk and vegetables. However, she also engages in some personal businesses to supplement her limited income.

In the modern world, agriculture has become much more dynamic, and the kinds of inputs that are being used have been upgraded. There is a need to use improved farming inputs for effective production. These include high-quality seeds and nutrient-rich fertilizer.

Teresia has learned that Juhudi Kilimo works with rural, small-holder farmers, and is giving them financial support in the form of loans. The loans enable them to access income-generating assets as well as farming inputs.

Teresia has used this loan to purchase farm inputs, such as high-quality seeds and nutrient-rich fertilizers, which she will use on her farm to boost her yields. Please lend to this industrious woman, so that she can save for her children's education.
