Judith's story

Judith, a 29-year-old mom, believes that hard work is the price of success, and that is why she has to put in more work so that she can have a good farm.

Despite the back-breaking labor that she puts into her farm, her income is not sufficient to meet the demands of her family. She uses low-quality farming inputs on her farm. She also has dairy animals.

In Kenya, agriculture is one of the most competitive activities, especially due to the high cost of operations necessary to improve farming. Such costs include the cost of land acquisition and inputs, which have always been high.

To meet the high costs of inputs, farmers have been forced to borrow from financial institutions, which sometimes impose very complicated procedures in loan distribution. Some farmers, especially women, end up being disadvantaged.

Judith is seeking a loan to buy farming inputs such as hybrid seeds and fertilizer to improve her corn farm's output and make profits to educate her children. This loan will enable her to improve her production through the use of high-quality farm inputs.

This intervention will help her fill the increasing demand for food in the market and, in the process, generate more income to repay the loan debt and improve the quality of life for her family.
