A loan helped to buy quality farming inputs such as nutrient-rich fertilizers to improve her corn production.


Jentrine's story

Mother’s day is fast approaching and Juhudi would like to celebrate mothers. Jentrine is a happy woman with 4 children. Her enormous contribution in lifting her family out of abject poverty shows what a remarkable woman she is, given the societal odds.


Jentrine has been a mixed farmer for the past few years and throughout this period she has made her life meaningful.


In Kenya, agriculture is one of the most competitive industries, especially due to the high costs of operations necessary to improve farming. Such costs include land acquisition and inputs which have skyrocketed. To meet the high costs of inputs, farmers have been forced to borrow from financial institutions, which sometimes impose very complicated procedures in loan distribution. Some farmers, especially women, end up being disadvantaged.


Jentrine is asking for this loan so she can buy quality farming inputs, such as certified nutrient-rich fertilizers, which she plans to use on her corn farm. With these inputs, Jentrine will be assured of a good harvest, which will consequently reflect in her pocket.


With this loan, Jentrine will change her life in this new year of 2019.
