Leah is a mother of three children who are all attending school. Her farm is run with the help of one farmhand, and she has been active in farming for eight straight years. She earns some additional income from her second-hand clothing business.

Leah has requested a third loan of 40,000 KES from Juhudi Kilimo to buy poultry. She believes this will boost her family's income. She plans to expand the acreage of her farm in the near future.

Leah sees the unreliability of rain and high costs of production as the major challenges in her farming business.
