Nancy's story

Nancy’s magic smile is what stands out when you look at her.

She is a mother. She lives in the Nkubu area, Kenya's major maize and banana growing region. Nkubu is also emerging as an important horticulture farming zone for East Africa.

Nancy has lovely children who are also her best friends, and she loves to spend time with them on her farm. Nancy started farming with the goal of generating income and contributing to the household's economy.

Nancy has been farming for many years. Over the years, she has gathered much experience, and she is considered to be among the best farmers in her village. Her primary source of income has been bananas. Nancy is very passionate about farming and loves taking care of her farm.

Although she makes a profit from farming, Nancy is not comfortable and has always wanted to increase her income by buying fertilizers so that she can improve her banana crop farm.

The Nkubu area, one of Kenya's most populated regions, has a high demand for bananas. This means that Nancy could increase her profits and satisfy the existing demand.

Nancy feels relieved because Juhudi Kilimo is partnering with the wonderful Kiva lenders to help hardworking and honest farmers like her turn their farming dreams into reality through training and loan financing.
