A loan of $1,000 helped to expand her horticultural farming.

Anastasia's story

Anastasia is 58 years old. She is married and has been blessed with 6 children who are all adults. One of her children is currently attending school. She is a farmer in Nkubu, eastern Kenya. She has been farming for the last 36 years and employs two farmhands. Her mixed farm produces tea, which she sells through the Kenya Tea Development Authority, milk, macadamia nuts, potatoes, bananas, coffee and French beans, which she sells to the Homegrown Company.

Anastasia has requested this loan of 80,000 KES from Juhudi Kilimo to expand her horticultural farming. She says that the income from this project will help her improve the livelihood of her family. In the future, she plans to expand her farming and buy a pick-up van that will assist her in transporting her products to the market. Her biggest challenges are lack of markets for her products, the high cost of pesticides and poor road networks. She comments that Juhudi has helped farmers view their occupation as a source of livelihood for their families.
