Florence's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped to purchase poultry.
Florence is a farmer living in the Nkubu area of Eastern Kenya with her two children, who are of school-going age. She has been farming for the past 10 years with her income coming from milk, eggs, tea, horticultural crops, transportation services and a retail business. What she enjoys most in farming is poultry farming where she gets enough money to take good care of her children, while her biggest challenge is insufficient capital and poor markets. Florence chose Juhudi Kilimo because they reach small holder farmers in the rural areas. During the training, she learned how to develop a savings culture. Through the use of this loan, she will be able to get more income and, thus, enable her to pay her children's school fees comfortably.
