Mary's story

Get to know Mary, a mom who has one school-going child. Mary has been involved in farming for the past few years and has learned a range of new farming practices that improve sustainability, enhance resilience, and are likely to be helpful in adapting to climate change. She is a remote farmer who lives in Kenyenya.

Mary’s main sources of income include crops. However, she engages in some personal businesses to enable her to supplement her limited income.

In the modern world, agriculture has become exceedingly dynamic. There is a need to use improved farming inputs for effective production. These include high-quality seeds and nutrient-rich fertilizers.

Mary has learned that Juhudi Kilimo has intervened in the activities of rural, smallholder farmers and is giving them financial support in the form of loans to enable them to access income-generating assets and farming inputs.

Mary has used this loan to purchase farm inputs such as high-quality seeds and nutrient-rich fertilizers, which she will use on her farm to boost her yields. Please lend to this industrious woman.
