Irene Chemutai joined Juhudi Kilimo through a group, Litein Happy SHG, whose main objective was to encourage each member to start a small agricultural business that would generate enough income to provide for the family’s needs.
Everline Rono, a wife, mother and subsistence farmer joined JuhudiKilimo after an introduction by a friend who shared similar interests in providing food and education for their children, a challenge most women in the rural areas face.
Joseph Omwenga is currently supplying timber for construction companies and hiring out his power saws as his main business.
Simon Mogusu is currently fetching great returns on his investment. He generates enough to pay his loans, educate his children and save. He plans to improve the housing unit for his animals to a brick walled house with cemented floor and install a biogas plant.
Sylvia Gakiiru currently has 7 dairy cows, 3 calves and sells piglets. Sylvia’s plan is to venture into poultry farming. And purchase a generator for her egg incubator. She also intends to purchase a biogas tube to store the fuel.
Jackeline Nyangaresi is able to feed and educate all her children from the income generated by her business. She acknowledges that she owes much of her success to JuhudiKilimo and she would not have been able to educate her children without their assistance.
Regina Murira is currently surviving on dairy farming. Her business has grown since she joined JuhudiKilimo. She always refers other subsistence farmers who are interested in achieving similar levels of success to the institution.
