Nkubu, Kenya / Farming

A loan of $700 helped to purchase a water tank.


Hellen's story

Hellen lives in the Nkubu area of Eastern Kenya, a very fertile area for agricultural production. She has two children who are of school-going age. She has been farming for eight years. Her main sources of income are maize, cow peas, potatoes and beans. The challenge she faces is that of poor climatic conditions.

She has requested a loan of KES 60,000 from Juhudi Kilimo for the purchase of a water tank for storing water for farming activities. This will boost production because of the regular flow of water to the farm. Her income base will increase and this will enable her to educate her children better and also improve their living standards.

In five years, she will have put up a green house to maximize production.

Hellen says that there has been an improvement in her farming practices as a result of the training received from Juhudi Kilimo.
