A loan of $600 helped to buy a water tank and irrigation pipes.


Martin's story

Martin has been in farming for nine years in his rural home in Nkubu, Central Kenya. He is aged 34 and married with two children aged 10 and two years. His farm produces maize, beans and poultry for the local market. He runs a small retail shop for additional income.

Martin has requested a loan of 50,000 KES from Juhudi Kilimo to set up an irrigation system on his farm by buying a water tank and irrigation pipes. He says this will mitigate the challenge of inadequate rains and improve his income so he can meet his family needs with the core one being to educate the children. He also plans to buy more acres of land.

Martin appreciates Juhudi Kilimo's loan services.
