Jane's story

Jane is 58 years old and is a married mother of 5 children who are all adults. She is a farmer from Nyamira town in western Kenya, where she has been farming for 31 years. Her farm produces tea, bananas, maize and beans, which are all sold locally. She earns additional income from her cereals business in the same area.

Jane has made a loan request of 45,000 Kes through Juhudi Kilimo to purchase and insure a dairy cow. The extra income from the sale of milk will help improve her family's livelihood. She faces the challenge of lack of enough farm implements and fertilizers. She plans to acquire more land in the future and expand her farming activities.
