Rosemary's story

Hello, lenders! The above picture presents Rosemary, a mother of 11 who has been practicing agriculture for the last 5 years. Because of the immense knowledge she has about farming, she commands a lot of respect among other farmers and is viewed as a mentor in her village.

Rosemary lives together with her children in the Kitale area of Kenya, which is known for maize farming. Her primary income sources are eggs and milk, and some personal business she engages in to supplement her meager income. Generating an income through selling her harvest is the part of farming she enjoys most, whilst availability of labour is a major challenge for her. She also keeps a dairy cow.

Before joining Juhudi, Rosemary could not access loans from banks since she is a woman and also a smallholder farmer. She joined Juhudi Kilimo and learnt about loan management and agribusiness. She also got to learn about Kiva.

Rosemary is seeking a loan to purchase farm implements. With your loan, she will make her farm activities much easier. This will boost her income and enable her to pay school fees for her children.

Rosemary waits for your kindness.
