A loan helped to build a modern dairy structure that will protect her animals from the harsh African climate conditions.


Mary's story

Mary is a mother of four children living in Kitale, a town that hosts elite Kenyan athletes. She loves her children so much, and that explains why she has sent them to school. Mary has been a mixed dairy and crop farmer for the last ten years, enabling her to support her family.

Dairy farming is close to her heart, and every day she wakes up to milk her cow. That makes her very proud. Although she makes profits from milk sales, she lacks a proper dairy building, so she is seeking a loan to build a modern dairy building.

Through Juhudi Kilimo, which is an institution that provides smallholder farmers with a service bundle that includes credit, training and market facilitation, Mary believes her life will change. Through the loan, she will have a humble time milking her cow and also feeding it. A good dairy building provides a place where cows can relax and also prevents them from contracting diseases that may arise from being exposed to harsh weather conditions, such as rain.

Support this hardworking woman as 2019 comes to an end.
