Nancy's story

Nancy is a dynamic, entrepreneurial, industrious and honest 26-year-old woman who resides in the Nandi Hills area of Kenya where she has been practicing mixed farming for the past five years. During that time, she has gained much experience and is considered among the best farmers from her village.

Her primary sources of income are milk, eggs, crops and some small business ventures that help her to make ends meet. Nancy is very passionate about farming and loves cultivating her farm. That is why, every day she wakes up very early to go to her farm to plow.

Although she makes profits from farming, she has always wanted to increase her income by selling cereals. Therefore, she is seeking this loan to buy cereal. Kenya's Nandihills area, one of the county's populated regions, has a high demand for cereal. This means that Nancy could increase her profits and satisfy the demand that is there.

Accessing funds has been a challenge for Nancy, but she now feels relieved because Juhudi Kilimo is partnering with Kiva lenders to help aspiring female farmers like her turn their farming dreams into reality through training and loan financing.

Nancy believes that this loan will be of much help. The extra income earned will enable a permanent change in her life and increase her business. Increased profits will allow Nancy to repay this loan and secure the future of her school-going child.

Nancy's main dream is to offer a great variety of cereal products to expand her client base and sales, thereby improving her well-being.

If there is someone you should not think twice about lending to, then that person is Nancy!
