Elizabeth's story

Hello lenders! Meet Elizabeth, a smallholder farmer from a remote village in the Kapsowar area of Kenya. She started farming five years ago on a small plot she acquired. On the farm, she has dairy cows and a small garden.

Elizabeth is seeking a 20,000 KES loan, which she will use to pay for farm inputs and hired labor in order to grow more crops on her farm. It takes a lot for a smallholder farmer to risk limited resources to expand a farm business.

With your help, Elizabeth will be able to settle the high cost of farm inputs necessary for expansion. A significant portion of the profit will be plowed back into the business to fuel growth as she sets a good foundation for her children.
