A loan of $700 helped to purchase water tanks and pipes for irrigation.


Mary's story

Mary, 51, is a farmer in Nkubu county in Kenya, where she lives with her three children, who are all adults and through with school. She is a widow and has been farming for twenty years, producing milk, french beans, potatoes, maize and wheat, which she sells at the local market. She is requesting a 60,000 KES loan from Juhudi Kilimo to purchase water tanks and water pipes for irrigation, which will help her water her crop even when there is little rainfall and yield more crops, to generate more food for the family and income to improve her living standards. She aspires to buy a vehicle to help her transport her produce, in the next five years. Poor road networks and lack of security are her major challenges in farming. Mary says Juhudi Kilimo is the best microfinance institution for farmers.
