Gladys's story

This is Gladys, a married lady who is 30 years old and the mother of 3 children. She is a hardworking business lady who grows khat for sale and also runs a butchery shop.

Selling khat gives her good income, and she wants to expand her business to make more income. With this loan, she will plant more khat trees and her business will blossom.

This being her first loan, she will use her profit to repay her loan quickly. Her dream is to educate her children to university.

This loan is special because:

It finances smallholder farmers to purchase supplies and agricultural equipment.
