Priscila's loan finished fundraising, but these similar borrowers need your support

A loan helped to buy hybrid seeds and expand her corn farming on her farm to satisfy the ready market for corn products and eventually improve her living conditions.

Priscila's story

Get to know Priscila (35-year-old mom of four), who is one of the most respected in her remote village due to her determination in supporting her family. Priscila is an active woman who works in agricultural activities, a skill that she inherited from her parents. Her family's main income source is milk from their dairy farm. However, they are also involved in other agricultural activities such as growing corn.

Priscila’s biggest challenges are disease and a shortage of farm inputs. Farmers in the area lack capital to purchase farm inputs such as chemicals to prevent these diseases. Priscila made the decision to join Juhudi Kilimo in order to access loans that would help her improve her farming activities. She is requesting a loan to buy hybrid seeds and expand her corn farm.

The additional income from the expansion will go to her children's education. With your loan, Priscila’s children will acquire a quality education that will act as a strong foundation for a bright future. Be inspired and support a Kenyan smallholder woman farmer!
