Jackline's story

Jackline, a mother of two children born in 1983, is the backbone of her family’s economic performance. She is a remote farmer who has gained so much from farming. She has made profits and earned independence and job security over the past few years that she has been farming. Jackline is married and lives with her husband and children in a remote village in the Nyahururu area of Kenya. She is a committed and devoted farmer who entirely depends on farming. Jackline is seeking a loan of 50,000 KES, which she will use to buy certified seeds and high-nutrient fertilizers to expand her crop farm. By scaling up her business, she will reduce production costs and increase output. Jackline's strategy is to use the returns from the investment to pay for more farm inputs, a lack of which is a major problem that leads to the closing down of many farms, due to poor quantity and quality of yields.
