Sicily's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped To purchase irrigation pipes and a water pump.
Sicily is 30 years old and a single mother of one child, age 8, who attends school. She has been farming for three years and employs 2 to 3 farmhands. She also sells rice to the local market. Sicily has requested this loan of 50,000Kes through Juhudi Kilimo to purchase irrigation pipes and a water pump. The extra income from this loan will help her educate her child and improve their livelihood. She says that her major challenges have been lack of enough water and unpredictable weather which affects her production. She plans to acquire more land in the future to enable her to do extensive farming on a large scale.
