A loan of $700 helped to construct a zero grazing unit and buy a chaff cutter.

Pamela's story

Pamela is a resident of Nkubu with 26 years of experience in mixed farming. She sells the major part of her produce, such as cabbages, tea, maize, and milk, within the local markets. She is a widow with 4 children; the youngest is the only one still in school.

Pamela has requested a loan of 60,000 KES from Juhudi Kilimo to help her set a zero-grazing unit (confined area for lifestock, to prevent disease) and buy a chaff cutter (a machine that cuts hay into smaller pieces to be mixed with feed and fed to lifestock).

She says her improved farming income will enable her to educate her youngest child. She remains optimistic that she will eventually buy a vehicle to ease transportation of her produce to the market.

Pamela says lack of proper development for the local markets is a major challenge, coupled with pests and diseases.
