Kanario's story

Kanario is a resident of Nkubu in Central Kenya. She is aged 58 and married with five adult children. She has consistently practiced farming for 11 years and currently sells her produce of cabbages, potatoes and carrots to the local market and mainly the middlemen. Kanario manages her farm with the help of two farmhands. Kanario has requested a loan of 80,000 KES from Juhudi Kilimo to help her venture into the poultry and dairy goat farming business at 60,000 KES and 20,000 KES, respectively. She hopes this will help her expand her cereals retail business that she runs alongside farming. Kanario adds she has settled for poultry and dairy goats that can give better yields even during harsh weather conditions. She reiterates that poor climatic conditions remain the major challenge to farmers in the area.
