Mary's story

Mary is a 60-year-old mother of three children. She is very hardworking and determined to succeed. She is a mixed farmer who also sells cereals. Through these ventures, she has been able to send her children to school. Mary dreams that through farming, she will be able to support her children. She adores and cherishes her children, and she is determined to give them a healthy lifestyle, including paying for their education.

Mary 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. She is seeking this loan to buy cereals to sell to her customers and earn extra income to support her children who are in school.

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

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