Millicent's story

Happy and hardworking, here stands Millicent, a mother of five children who is 47 years old and lives in Nyamira.

For the past few years, this enterprising woman has been actively involved in mixed farming. She loves farming for it is her only way of securing a living for her lovely family.

Millicent dreams that through farming she will be able to pull away from poverty and see to it that all of her family members become successful. She is a visionary and keen to ensure that she keeps on progressing.

Juhudi Kilimo, in partnership with Kiva, has extended its services to the remote areas of the Nyamira region of Kenya, and their staff are keen to ensure that hardworking women like Millicent benefit from loans that should enable them to purchase assets and farming inputs.

She is seeking a loan to buy farm inputs such as seeds and nutrient-rich fertilizer. Your loan will enable her to improve her production through the use of quality farm inputs. Through this intervention, she will be able to improve the quality of her farm products and attract more buyers, leading to more profits.
