A loan of $475 helped to buy irrigation equipment.

Rosemary's story

Rosemary, 58, is a small-scale farmer from the fertile land of bananas: Nkubu town in Mt. Kenya Region. She has been farming for the last twenty years, producing maize, beans and horticultural crops which she sells locally. She also operates a retail shop in the same town. She says that farming has always been her hobby and this has made it more successful than she ever imagined. She, like any other farmer, faces the challenges of lack of enough water for her crops and lack of enough capital for expansion.

She has made her first loan request through Juhudi Kilimo for a loan of 40,000 KES in order to purchase irrigation equipment, including water pipes and a pump. This loan will enable her install irrigation equipment at her farm which she can use during the dry season. She says that this will ensure constant production throughout all seasons. The increased production will increase her income and improve her living standards.

Rosemary would like to acquire a pick-up truck in the near future to help transport her produce to the market
