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

A loan helped to buy farm structures, such as a modern dairy shed, that will help significantly in managing animals’ health and hygiene for increased production.

Lucy's story

Lucy, a 61-year-old mom of three children, is the true definition of a hard worker and a happy mother. She is a farmer in Chuka growing crops and dairy farming. Her dream is to make the world a better place.

Lucy is seeking a loan from Kiva lenders via Juhudi Kilimo to construct a cowshed.

This will help significantly in managing the animals’ health and hygiene. She has been in the mixed farming business for the past few years and has no plans to quit, as she finds farming to be not only fulfilling but also lucrative. However, her biggest challenges are the poor road network and the lack of a market.

With your loan, Lucy will construct a cowshed which will later come in handy when she scales up and introduces zero-grazing. The long-term impact is an increase in productivity and improved animal health. The additional income from this development will go to her children’s education.

Kindly lend to a Kenyan farmer with great dreams.
