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


A loan helped to purchase a high-yield dairy cow and milk cans to expand her milk-vending business and generate more income to sustain her family.


Jackline's story

Jackline, a mother of two school-going children, is a smallholder farmer who is completely dedicated to her farming job because she has a family to take care of. Jackline has been farming for more than ten years. Over the years, she has gathered much experience and is considered among the best farmers in her village. Her primary sources of income have been milk, eggs, and horticultural crops. Jackline is very passionate about farming and loves cultivating her farm. She loves dairy farming the most, while her greatest challenge is a lack of enough feed for her livestock.

Jackline chose Juhudi Kilimo after realizing that it finances farmers to help obtain important assets for their farms. She is borrowing to purchase a high-yield dairy cow and milk cans to expand her milk vending business and generate more income to sustain her family. Through Juhudi Kilimo, Jackline has learned how to develop a savings culture. This loan will be of benefit to her family, in that they will have more milk for consumption and sale, and their living standards will improve.
