Grace M. is a mother of three adults and a farmer in the Nkubu area in Central Kenya. She has been farming for ten years producing potatoes, vegetables, carrots, maize and milk and selling them in the local market. Grace has employed one farmhand and relies entirely on farming for her family’s upkeep. She believes finding sources for financial assistance for farming is the greatest challenge to farmers in her area. She believes Juhudi Kilimo loans have done a great service in mitigating this problem.

Grace has requested a loan of 47,250 KES from Juhudi Kilimo to enable her to purchase and insure a dairy cow. She says she is focusing on purchasing more acreage and expanding her farm. She believes steady income from the cow will cater to her family’s needs and make saving possible so she can open her own shop in the future.
