Anah's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to start horticulture farming.

Anah's story

Anah lives in Kapsowar, an area with conditions that favor horticulture farming: good climate, soil, a transport system and a market. For the past year she has been actively involved in mixed farming. She has been earning good profits from her dairy. Anah is a woman with a great future ahead of her.

Anah has always wanted to diversify into horticulture farming, but her biggest challenge is her lack of capital. Through the Kapyego self-help group, whose members co-guarantee each other to secure a loan, she joined Juhudi Kilimo, a microfinance organization that supports young and enterprising farmers.

Anah is now applying for a 20,000 KES loan to embark on farming. With this loan she intends to buy good-quality vegetable and flower seeds, plus potato starts. Proximity to an airstrip will allow her to transport the produce faster to an international market, enabling her to make more money.

This loan will improve Anah's living conditions and secure the future of her children.
