Irene's story

Irene (a mom of six) is a resourceful farmer from a remote village in the Kerugoya area of Kenya. Thanks to her daily efforts, she has managed to give her family a good start.

Irene has a farm where she grows bananas and other crops and raises livestock. She also earns additional income from a personal business. Irene never had a college education, and she is content with the farming lifestyle.

The Kerugoya area is a favorable one for farming. Irene requested a loan from Juhudi Kilimo for 80,000 KES, which she will use to buy farm inputs, such as fertilizer, in order to grow more bananas.

This loan will allow Irene to reap maximum profits and expand her banana crop business.
