Esther's story

Hello! Meet Esther, a young farmer from Nandihills County in Kenya who has defied the common thinking of most Kenyans about agriculture - that it’s for the older generation. Esther is a proud owner of a small parcel of land on which she has been practicing mixed farming for the past five years. Her primary sources of income have been milk, eggs and some varieties of crops she plants. She also engages in some personal business to make ends meet.

Esther passionately loves farming and she says that she got interested in farming out of a desire to be a solution to food security that remains a thorn in the flesh for all the farmers in Nandihills and Africa as a whole. From farming, she has been able to earn a decent income and she attributes all this success to hard work and determination. Although she makes profits, she has always wanted to increase her farming and start a cereal-selling business. The main challenge she has been facing is lack of funds.

She is seeking a loan to buy cereals. Demand for cereals is overwhelming in Nandihills and through your loan, she intends to buy different varieties of cereals and be able to satisfy the demand in her village and local markets.

With your loan, Esther will improve her living conditions through increased profits from selling cereals. Esther has been practicing agriculture with a difference employing youthful energy, enthusiasm and knowledge attained through training from Juhudi Kilimo and she believes that her cereal-selling business will increase by leaps and bounds.

There is no doubt that through your loan, Esther’s life is permanently going to change and she will assure her school-going children a secure future.
