Jane's story

Hello, lenders. Meet Jane, pictured in her simple house. She is a smallholder farmer from a remote village situated in the central province of Kenya. She lives together with her husband and children on a small piece of land where she grows a wide variety of crops. For the past few years, her primary sources of income have been horticulture crops. Her biggest challenges are diseases and the shortage of farm inputs.

Farmers in the area lack capital to purchase farm inputs such as chemicals to prevent these diseases. Jane made a decision to join Juhudi Kilimo in order to access loans that would help her improve her farming activities. Sometime this month, she applied for a loan for buying seeds to expand her horticulture farm. This will enable her to expand her operations to increase the overall output. The additional income from the expansion will go to her children's upkeep. With your loan, Jane’s children will acquire a good-quality life that will act as a strong foundation for their bright future.
