but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!


A loan helped to buy quality farming inputs such as certified seeds and nutrient-rich fertilizers, which this mum plans to use on her farm to improve her production in 2021.


Grace's story

Juhudi would like to celebrate Grace as a woman. She is a 66-year-old smallholder farmer. Her enormous contribution in uplifting her family out of abject poverty shows what a remarkable woman she is, given the societal odds.

Grace has been a dairy and mixed farmer for many years, and throughout this period she has made her life meaningful.

In Kenya, agriculture is one of the most competitive industries, especially due to the high costs of operations necessary to improve farming. Such costs include the cost of land acquisition and inputs which have always skyrocketed. To meet the high costs of inputs, farmers have been forced to borrow from financial institutions, which sometimes impose very complicated procedures for loan distribution. Some farmers, especially women, end up hopeless and despondent, lacking the morale to invest in agriculture.

Grace has taken this loan so that she can use it to buy quality farming inputs such as certified seeds and nutrient-rich fertilizers, which she plans to use on her farm. With these inputs, Grace will be assured of a good harvest, which will consequently be reflected in her pocket. With this loan, Grace will change her life in 2021.

Light up a spirit this 2021!
