A loan of $500 helped to purchase and insure a dairy cow.

Mary's story

Sixty-year-old Mary is a farmer from Kisii town in western Kenya, where she has been farming for 30 years. She employs 3 farmhands and sells her produce of bananas, vegetables and maize to the local market. She is married with 7 children, two of whom are currently attending school.

She has requested a loan through Juhudi Kilimo of 45,000 KES to purchase and insure a dairy cow. She says that the extra income from this loan will help her meet her family's basic needs. The fluctuating weather patterns and lack of stable market for farm produce have been her greatest challenges. She plans to acquire more dairy cows in future.
