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

A loan helped to buy farm inputs such as fertilizer to grow more tea crops to expand her tea farm.

Mercyline's story

Greetings from Nyamira, Kenya!

Meet Mercyline, a true representative of a "zealous woman." The living conditions in the remote village where she lives are not for cowardly women. Mercyline gallantly takes care of her home and runs her dairy, tea and crop farming business. For a diligent woman like her, planning is essential for success.

Mercyline loves her family more than anything and this clearly explains why she has never abandoned her responsibilities, even in times of great difficulty. Mercyline has depended entirely on dairy, tea and crop farming, not only for increasing profits but also for the opportunity it gives her to make her own decisions.

Mercyline is seeking a loan to buy farm inputs, such as fertilizers, to expand her tea farm.

In her remote village, loans are hard to get for female smallholder farmers with little and irregular income. Only a few organizations, such as Juhudi Kilimo, support farmers like Mercyline.

Juhudi Kilimo facilitates loans that empower smallholder farmers like Mercyline because the institution believes that women are good and hardworking farmers too.

Be inspired this holiday season and put a smile on the face of a Kenyan woman by kindly granting her a loan!
