Mercy's story

Mercy (pictured alongside her children) is a 21-year-old mother living in Bomet, a town that hosts a number of elite athletes in Kenya. She is an honest, hardworking, loyal person who is completely dedicated to her farming job because she has a family to take care of. Mercy has been farming for many years. Over the years, she has gathered much experience and is considered among the best farmers in her village. On this farm, she practices mixed farming. She keeps dairy animals and grows maize and vegetables. Mercy is seeking a loan to buy seeds and fertilizer to expand her horticulture farm. Because of the favorable weather and road conditions, she will have an easy time transporting her horticulture products to the market. Loans for smallholder farmers with irregular income and no solid collateral are hard to come by in Kenya. Juhudi Kilimo facilitates loans that empower smallholder farmers like Mercy.
