Mary's story

Mary is a 36 years old single mom of 3 school going children. She has suffered a series of failures in her life but she has always remained a resilient woman and has never given up.

She is a smallholder farmer from a remote village in the Bungoma area of Kenya. Mary dreams that, through farming, she will be able to pull away from poverty. In the modern world, agriculture has become exceedingly dynamic, making the kind of inputs that are being used in the sector today upgraded. On this note, there is need to use improved farming inputs for effective production.

Mary is borrowing this loan to hire labour to help her harvesting and tiling her farm. Kenya's Bungoma area, one of the country's most populated regions, has a high demand for food.

This loan could increase Mary's profits and help her satisfy the demand for crop products. She feels relieved because Juhudi Kilimo is partnering with the wonderful Kiva lenders. Kindly be inspired!
