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


A loan helped a single mom to buy different varieties of cereals such as lentils, cow peas, maize, and rice to sell in the local market and generate a profit to support her family.


Ellen's story

Mother’s day is this month and Juhudi Kilimo would like to celebrate mothers who sacrifice a lot for their families.

Ellen (a single mom of 4 school going children, 32years old) loves people and has always been kind to other residents of Vihiga, a remote town where she lives. Ellen has experienced many challenges, but she always finds a way to pull through. She is elegant and admirable in spirit and effort.



Ellen’s primary sources of income have been milk, animals and crops. She also engages in a small side business to supplement the meager income she earns from farming. Although she has been earning profits from farming, she has identified a market segment for selling cereals. The only big challenge she faces is the lack of funds.



Ellen is requesting a loan to buy different varieties of cereals such as lentils, cow peas, maize, and rice to sell in the local market and generate a profit to support her family.



The market for cereals is never a problem because the demand is always high, so she plans to take advantage of that fact. Because of the good relationship she has with her neighbors, Ellen plans to increase her market share by using word-of-mouth to reach more customers and markets.



You can help this mother achieve her dreams with a loan that will lead to huge profits.
