A loan helped to buy farm inputs to improve productivity and profits.

Violet's story

Violet is a 52-year-old mom and the true definition of an “iron woman.” Living conditions in her remote village are not for a faint-hearted person. She gallantly serves her home and runs her dairy and crop-farming business. For a diligent woman like her, planning is essential to success.

Violet loves her family more than anything, and this clearly explains why she has never abandoned her responsibilities, even in times of great difficulty. She has entirely depended on farming, not only for the increased profits she earns, but also for the opportunity it gives her to make her own decisions.

She's seeking a loan to buy farm inputs, such as seeds, to expand her crop farm.

Loans for smallholder women farmers with little and irregular income are hard to get in her remote village. Only a few organizations, such as Juhudi Kilimo, support farmers like Violet. The group facilitates loans that empower smallholder farmers, because the institution believes that women are good and hardworking farmers too.

Light up a life in this tough time, and kindly empower a smallholder Kenyan woman through a loan!
