Doreen's story

Meet Doreen, a 30-year-old mother of two children living in Meru, home to the great Mount Kenya, a mountain that overflows with natural beauty.

Doreen is a hard-working, small-scale farmer who is not daunted by the difficult situations she has had to face in her lifetime. Doreen has been practicing farming on a small, inherited piece of land for the past ten years. On her farm, Doreen practices mixed farming and she sells milk, eggs, and maize as her sources of income. She loves dairy farming the most, and her greatest challenge is the lack of sufficient feed for her livestock.

Doreen chose Juhudi Kilimo after realizing that they finance farmers to help them obtain important assets for their farms. She is borrowing funds to purchase a high-yield dairy cow and milk cans to expand her milk-vending business and generate more income to sustain her family.

Through Juhudi Kilimo, Doreen learned how to develop a savings culture. This loan will be of benefit to her family in that they will have more milk for consumption and sale and their living standards will improve.

Be inspired and lend to this zealous woman!
