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

A loan helped to buy another quality dairy cow to meet the demand for milk in her local area.

Lucy's story

Lucy’s (47-year-old mom of four) life changed completely when she decided to take up farming a few years ago. She is a hardworking mother living in Nkubu, Kenya with her family. Though her family hit on hard times, she never let it get in the way of her ambitions and drive. Lucy started farming in pursuit of future prosperity and happiness for her family. She decided not to let any distraction deter her from achieving her life goal.

In farming, Lucy practices mainly dairy and crop production. Through these ventures, she is able to generate an income for her family. She chose Juhudi Kilimo after realizing that it finances farmers to help obtain important assets for their farms. She is borrowing to buy another dairy cow that is a quality breed, to meet demand for milk in her area.

During the Juhudi Kilimo training that Lucy received from the loan officer, she learned how to develop a savings culture. This loan will be of benefit to her children in that they will have more milk for consumption and sale, and their living standard will improve.

Be inspired to support Lucy as she looks forward to transforming her life fully.
