Nancy's story

Hello lenders,

Christmas is approaching, and Juhudi Kilimo would like to present to you a hardworking mother by the name of Nancy. Nancy is a single mother who is blessed with lovely children who are her greatest motivators. She perseveres because she wants to provide a better future for them.

Nancy earns a living by raising dairy cows and selling grocery goods (fruits and vegetables). She has been able to send all of her children to school. Nancy has been engaged in her businesses for seven years. Her biggest problem is meeting customer demand because of a shortage of products. Thus, she is asking for a loan to buy fruits and vegetables to stock her grocery. With her marketing skills and determination, Nancy will be able to increase her sales revenue.

Nancy plans to use the additional profits to clear her children's school fees. She will also buy nutritious food for her children, whom she loves and adores so much. Being a woman and accessing funds in Kenya, especially around Nyamira, where Nancy lives, is very challenging, but she feels relieved knowing there are institutions such as Kiva that help enterprising women like herself. Nancy is happy that her grocery business will excel and that she will be able to buy more land for farming next season.
