Dorothy's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to buy farm inputs, such as fertilizer and seeds, and improve her crop production, in order to sell the crops and use the increased profits to improve her living standards.

Dorothy's story

Dorothy is 42 years old and lives in Kerugoya, a town where the main economic activities include agricultural farming.

Dorothy is a crop farmer; she gets her profits from selling crops and dairy farming.

Those who know Dorothy in the Kerugoya area describe her as very hardworking and determined. She wishes to continue farming and establish a big agribusiness farm.

The quality of Dorothy’s crops has dwindled due to the use of poor farm inputs. This has brought about low demand for her crops and negatively impacted her sales. Access to modern-quality farm inputs is the pillar of the agricultural revolution. However, in Kenya, a developing country, fertilizer and seed allocation by the government is way below the needs of farmers.

Dorothy is seeking a loan to purchase farming inputs such as fertilizer and hybrid seed to boost the quality of her produce. Since Juhudi Kilimo ventured into the affairs of smallholder farmers in Kenya, farmers can attest to a significant improvement in the availability of farm inputs. Dorothy is assured of a bumper harvest, which will open new markets for her crops and subsequently increase her profits.
