Nessy's story

Nessy, a humble single mum, is a hardworking farmer from a remote village in the Meru area of Kenya.

Nessy has a farm where she grows crops and raises livestock. She also earns additional income from a personal business.

Nessy requested a loan from Juhudi Kilimo for 50,000 Kenyan shillings (KES), which she will use to buy farming inputs such as fertilizer to enable her to grow more banana crops, reap maximum profits, and increase her business.

She is always working to improve her family’s living conditions.
