Lucy's story

Lucy is a 46-year old mother living in Meru, a town surrounded by prime agricultural lands which favor large-scale grain farming and crop farming. She has been farming for the past many years. Through the years, she has gathered much experience, and all the farming techniques are at her fingertips. Lucy practices mixed farming. With her profits, she has managed to take care of her family's needs. Lucy is very enterprising and is seeking an emergency loan to buy seeds to improve her crop farming. Lucy wants to take advantage of the favorable weather patterns, a good road network in her village, good soil, and a ready market for crop products. This will increase her profit. Juhudi Kilimo is partnering with Kiva and the Kiva lender community to help hardworking and honest women like Lucy turn their farming dreams into reality through training and loan financing.
