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

A loan helped to buy cereal grains, such as beans and maize, to sell in her village market and, as a mom, use the profits to support her family.

Margaret's story

Determination is the main driving force that keeps Margaret, a 41-year-old mom of 4, moving forward. She is a determined smallholder farmer, despite the challenges she faces in life, at home, and in her farming business. She acknowledges that challenges are there to make her grow stronger each day.

Margaret is very creative and has the ability to come up with unique new responses to situations. She has the insight to recognize and take up useful new approaches to farming.

Margaret is seeking this loan to buy cereal grains, which she will sell to her customers and earn extra income to support her family.

Kenya's Bomet area, one of the country's populated regions, has a high demand for cereals. This means that Margaret could increase her profits and satisfy the demand that is there.

Accessing funds has been a challenge for Margaret, but since she joined Juhudi, in partnership with Kiva, she feels relieved and happy that her life has transformed. Kindly lend to this determined, humble woman.
