Linet's story

International Women's Day month is here with us and Juhudi Kilimo would like to celebrate a woman this month. Get to know Linet, a 25-year-old mother of lovely school-going children and a rural smallholder farmer from the Kitale area of Kenya. Her family's main income source is milk from their dairy farm. They are also involved in other agricultural activities such as growing different crops.

In Kenya, agriculture is one of the most competitive industries, especially because of the high cost of operations necessary to improve farming. Such costs include land acquisition and supplies, which continue to rise. To meet the high cost of supplies, farmers have been forced to borrow from financial institutions that sometimes impose very complicated procedures in loan distribution. Some farmers, especially women, end up being disadvantaged.

Linet is seeking a loan to buy farm supplies, such as nutrient-rich fertilizer and certified seeds, to improve her output and generate more income for her family. She also hopes to improve the condition of her house. Please help this mother to accomplish all her dreams. Linet counts on your help and hopes for your attention.
