Mary's story

Mary has been operating her mixed farm for over thirty years in the town of Kisii in Western Kenya. Her farm produces maize, milk, beans, millet, vegetables and tea leaves, which she sells to the Kenya Tea Development Authority and the local market. She also operates a business selling both second-hand and new clothes. Mary is 52 years old. She is married and has been blessed with six children, all now adults. One of her children is currently attending school.

Mary has a good record with Juhudi Kilimo, after she successfully completed her previous loans. She has requested this loan of 90,000 Kenyan Shillings to purchase a dairy cow and expand her cereal business by increasing stock. She hopes to be able to provide for the basic needs of her family with the proceeds from this loan.

In the future, she plans to start a big hardware store and to buy a transportation truck.
