Murang'a, Kenya / Farming

A loan of $600 helped buy greenhouse materials.


George's story

George is a resident of Murang’a in Central Kenya where he has been practicing mixed farming for fifteen years. He produces and sells tomatoes, cabbages and Arabica flowers. He also sources greenhouse polythene and sells to local farmers for additional income.

George has requested a loan of 50,000 KES from Juhudi Kilimo to buy greenhouse accessories. He will use these to set up a greenhouse on his farm to boost the growing of Arabica flowers and tomatoes. He reiterates that he will channel the income to improving the lives of his two children as well as making his farming more commercial.

George says poor weather conditions that make pests and weeds rampant remain his major challenge.
