Mary's story

Mary is a farmer from Kisii town in Western Kenya. She has been farming for the last 30 years and has employed one farm-hand. Her main products are maize, sweet potatoes, beans, and groundnuts which she sells locally.

Mary is 52 years old. She is a widowed mother of 4 children between the ages of 8 and 30. Two of the children attend school. Apart from farming, she also operates a retail shop and sells ready-made clothes at the local market. Her primary challenge has been lack of capital to expand her farming activities.

She recently completed her first loan from Juhudi Kilimo and has requested this loan of KES.70,000 to purchase a 'posho' mill (used for grinding maize into flour). The proceeds from this loan will enable her to pay school fees for her children who are in school.

She appreciates the loan she has been given and is planning to apply for other loans in future to improve her financial status.
