Mary's story

Mary is a 38-year-old mother living in Busia, a town whose surroundings have vast agricultural potential with numerous small farms and also vast agricultural enterprises. Despite the challenges she faces in life, at home and in her farming business, Mary has the ability to come up with unique responses to situations. She is very creative and has the insight to recognize and take up useful new approaches to farming. She acknowledges that challenges are there to make her grow stronger each day.

Mary is seeking this loan to buy cereal grains, which she will sell to her customers and earn extra income to support her family. Kenya's Busia area, one of the country's most populated regions, has a high demand for cereals. This means that Mary could increase her profits and satisfy the demand that is there. Accessing funds has been a challenge for Mary, but since she joined Juhudi, which is in partnership with Kiva, she feels relieved and happy that her life has transformed. Kindly lend to this determined and humble woman.
