A loan of $900 helped to purchase a motorcycle for transporting her farm produce to the market.

Agnes's story

Agnes is age 50 and a married mother of five children who are all adults. She has a mixed farm in Kisii town, in western Kenya that produces maize, coffee, vegetables and nappier grass, which are all sold to the local market. She has been in the farming business for over 30 years and depends on the income from her farm to cater to the needs of her family.

Agnes has made a third loan request through Juhudi Kilimo of 80,000 KES to purchase a motorcycle. She says that this motorcycle will enable her to transport her farm produce to the market and access other local markets. She plans to use the extra income from this project to pay school fees for her youngest child who is currently attending school.

Her major challenges in this business have been unpredictable weather conditions, which affects her production and lack of enough capital for expansion. She plans to purchase a van and a posho mill in the near future.
