Florence's story

Florence is a resident of an area called Nkubu in Central Kenya, where she has been practicing mixed farming for nearly 30 years. Her farm produces French beans, maize, cabbage, and potatoes for the local market. She is married with four adult children. Florence has requested a loan of 41,600 KES from Kiva partner Juhudi Kilimo to buy and insure a dairy cow. She reiterates that farming has been her main source of income and remains optimistic about generating more income. She plans to buy more land to help her produce a variety of products. Florence says high costs of inputs like fertilizers remain the greatest challenge in farming. She, however, adds that Juhudi Kilimo loans have empowered smallholder farmers immensely.
