A loan helped To start a cereals business.
Choice is a farmer from Kisii town in western Kenya where she has been farming for 20 years. Her farm produces maize and nappier grass, which she sells to the local market and tree seedlings which she sells through brokers. Choice is 42 years old. She is married with six children who are between the ages of 2 and 20. Four of the children are currently attending school. She has requested this loan from Juhudi Kilimo of 20,000 KES to start a cereals business. The extra income from this loan will help her pay school fees for her children and improve the living standards of her family. Her major challenge has been lack of enough capital to expand her tree seedling business. She hopes that in future, she will be able to increase the acreage of her maize and nappier plantation and expand her cereals business.
