Alice
Alice, aged 35, is a mixed farmer who has been doing farming for the past nine years and really enjoys farming. Her primary sources of income are crop farming, dairy farming and personal business, and through these ventures she has been able to make ends meet.

Alice is a caring mother of two adorable children whom she really treasures because they are her “apple of the eye”. Alice and her family live in Kerugoya area of Kenya, an area that is very fertile and has good weather patterns that support farming activities.

Alice is very enterprising, and through farming, she has been able to support her family, although she has been facing challenges. That is why she is seeking a loan to buy farm implements that will assist her to produce more. With the loan, Alice will be able to completely turn around her life because the production level on her farm will increase, and this means more income. Through the loan, she will be able to assure her family of improved living standards, and she is confident that the new profits will allow her to comfortably repay the loan.

Alice intends to purchase more land through savings that she would have made, and this will assure her family of a brighter future.
