Emma has made a first-time request for a loan of 60,000 KES from Juhudi Kilimo to buy piglets and a water tank. She says that an adequate water supply will enable her to cultivate a variety of products during both the rainy and dry seasons. She aspires to grow her retail shop into a wholesale business in the future.
Emma says a lack of capital and a poorly developed local market are among the leading challenges she faces in farming.
