Mary's story

Mary is 40 years old and lives in the Endebes area. She has six children, who are the reason for her hard work and motivation. Most financial institutions shy away from financing smallholder farmers but Juhudi Kilimo is different and is happy to provide a platform where Kiva lenders can support smallholder farmers.

Mary’s primary source of income has come from selling milk, crop farming, and poultry farming. Through these ventures she has been able to earn a decent income. She is a very determined and dedicated farmer who has been farming for 10 years, and throughout, she has never regretted going into farming.

Endebes area has proven a ready market for cereals, so she is kindly seeking a loan to buy cereals for re-sale and thus improve her income. This ever-smiling mum has been making great improvements and she believes that through your loan she will be able to realize her goal of improving her living conditions and transforming her life. Through Juhudi Kilimo, Mary has received training and she has proven to be honest and disciplined with finances. Mary is quite visionary and - with her accumulated profits - hopes she will be able to open a large cereal-selling shop that will boost her income and turn her life around.
