Eglah's story

Greetings from Makutano, Kenya!

Meet Eglah who is a 24 year old lady from Makutano in the Mount Elgon area of Kenya. She is married and has two children, one of whom is going to school. She has been practicing mixed farming for years and has vast experience. Eglah has faced farming challenges such as lack of financing, which is why she chose to approach Juhudi Kilimo which gives loans to smallholder farmers like her.

Elgah is seeking a loan to purchase modern farm inputs such as seedlings, fertilizers and chemicals. She is determined and hopeful that through the loan she will increase and improve her produce which she will sell in her home market and therefore increase profits. This will lead to an improvement in her family's day to day life. In addition she will set a good basis for her future from her young age because her dream is to become independent and support her children by herself.
