Agnes's story

Agnes is a 42-year-old widow who lives with her six children in Eldama Ravine. She has learned a range of new farming practices that improve sustainability, enhance resilience, and are likely to be helpful in adapting to climate change.

Agnes’s main sources of income include milk and crops. She also engages in some personal businesses to enable her to supplement her limited income. In the modern world, agriculture has become exceedingly dynamic; as a result, the kind of upgraded inputs that are being used in the sector today have become a necessity. On this note, there is the need to use improved farming inputs for effective production. These include high-quality seeds and nutrient-rich fertilizers.

Agnes has learned that Juhudi Kilimo has intervened in the activities of rural, smallholder farmers and is giving the farmers financial support in the form of loans to enable them to gain access to income-generating assets and farming inputs. Agnes will use this loan to purchase farm inputs, such as high-quality seeds and nutrient-rich fertilizers, which she will use on her farm to boost her yields. Please lend to this industrious woman so that she can save for her children's education!
