Nkubu, Kenya / Pigs

A loan of $250 helped to buy piglets.


Zipporah's story

Zipporah is 29 years old and has been in active farming for five years in her rural home in Central Kenya. Her farm produces tea, bananas, maize and cabbage. She also runs a tailoring business for additional income. She is single with one child who is four years old.

Zipporah has requested a loan of 20,000 KES from Juhudi Kilimo to help her buy piglets for a venture into pig farming. She hopes to gain more income and establish a big pork butchery within the local market. She believes she will be able to improve her family's living standard and educate her child.

Zipporah notes the main challenge is the inadequacy of funds for smallholder farmers.
