Rose, 33, is a married mother of five children. She lives with her family in a community in Msambweni, Kenya. She has worked in agriculture, growing a variety of crops such as corn and cassava, among others, for two years. She states that she decided to go into this activity because she needed to generate income to support her children.
Aiming at providing proper maintenance to her farm, she’s requested a 20,000 KES loan to buy fertilizer to nourish the crop and also farming equipment. She hopes to improve her farm’s productivity and to attain a stable source of income for her family’s benefit.
