A loan of $725 helped to buy irrigation equipment.

Rose's story

Rose, a 52-year-old widowed mother of two adult children aged 31 and 21 years, has been farming for over 20 years, mainly producing bananas and milk for the local market. Rose also operates as a wholesaler of bananas which she sources from her farm and from other farmers in the area.

Rose has requested a loan of 60,000 KES from Juhudi Kilimo to help her buy irrigation equipment in order to expand her banana farming. She hopes to do well with the expansion since she has a strong market base for her products. The income will help her to pay the college tuition fees for her last-born child.

Rose says the high costs of farming inputs is a deterrent to many people considering entry into the farming business. She adds that farmers need proper training in agricultural techniques in order to reap profits from their investments.
