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

A loan helped to hire laborers and buy farm inputs, such as seeds, to expand her crop farm.

Rose's story

Meet Rose (28-year-old mom of three school-going children), a true representative of a “warrior woman.” The living conditions in the remote village where she lives are not for faint-hearted women. Rose gallantly takes care of her home and runs her dairy and crop farming business. For a diligent woman like her, planning is essential for success.

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

Rose is seeking a loan to buy farm inputs, such as seeds, to expand her crop farm, where she grows different crops, and also to hire laborers to help her in her farm work.

In her remote village, loans are hard to get for female smallholder farmers with low and irregular income. Only a few organizations, such as Juhudi Kilimo, support farmers like Rose. Juhudi Kilimo facilitates loans that empower smallholder farmers like Rose, because the institution believes that women are good and hardworking farmers, too.

Be inspired this 2019 season and put a smile on the face of a Kenyan woman by kindly granting her a loan!
