A loan of $1,050 helped to construct a zero grazing unit and buy irrigation equipment.

Magdaline's story

Magdaline is aged 64 and has been in active farming for 17 solid years. Her farm currently produces bananas, arrowroots, paw paw, maize and avocados which are all sold within the local market. Her farm is currently run with the help of two farmhands.

Magdaline had previously acquired two loans of 45,000 KES and 60,000 KES respectively, both of which were repaid promptly. She is currently requesting a loan of 90,000 KES from Juhudi Kilimo to build a zero grazing unit for her dairy animals at 50,000 KES, and to improve her farming by installing an irrigation system in her farm for her banana plantation, which requires consistent irrigation. She will use the loan specifically to buy a water tank and irrigation pipes. She says that finances are the farmer's main predicament; the high cost of labour and animal diseases are some pressing issues. She reiterates that the future is promising with Juhudi Kilimo loans together with the skills she has gathered in 17 years.
