Irene's loan finished fundraising, but these other borrowers need your support


A loan helped to buy quality farming inputs, such as certified seeds and nutrient-rich fertilizers, which she plans to use on her farm to improve her production in 2019.


Irene's story

This is Irene, a mother of lovely 2 school going children. She has always dreamt of making the world a better place for her children. She is a woman with a big heart, and her tenderness and her love for farming exceed all limits.

She is a wise farmer who is respected by her neighbours and fellow farmers as a mentor. Because she is unwilling to let her children suffer, Irene injects passion and enthusiasm into her farming business.

Irene is a smallholder farmer from Maua in the Central region of Kenya. Irene owns a small parcel of farmland. On this farm, she practices mixed farming. She keeps dairy animals and grows different crops. She has many years of experience in farming.

Irene is seeking a loan to buy seeds and fertiliser to expand her crop farm. Because of the favourable weather and road conditions, she will have an easy time transporting her crop products to the market.

Loans for smallholder farmers with irregular income and no solid collateral are hard to come by in Kenya. Juhudi Kilimo facilitates loans that empower smallholder farmers like Irene.

She really counts on your help and understanding.
