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

A loan helped to buy an additional dairy cow to help a mom improve her milk-vending business so she can generate more profits to support her family.

Janet's story

Janet lives in a typical village in the Siongiroi area of Kenya, where people suffer from poverty and lack of capital.

Most people who live in this area are smallholder farmers. She has been practicing farming on a small, inherited piece of land. She believes in the slogan "unity is strength" which is why she decided to join Juhudi Kilimo, a microfinance entity that supports women farmers. On her farm, she practices mixed farming, and she sells milk and crops as her sources of income.

In farming, she loves dairy farming the most, while her greatest challenge would be lack of enough feed for her livestock. Janet chose Juhudi Kilimo after realizing that they finance farmers to help obtain important assets for their farms. She is borrowing to buy another dairy cow.

During the Juhudi Kilimo training, she 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 standard will improve.

Be inspired and lend to this zealous mama!
