Lucy's story

Lucy is a happily married lady, who is 43 years of age. She is a mother of two children and they live in Nanyuki, in the Mount Kenya region.

Lucy is a hard-working farmer, for which she is well known. She goes to her shamba while it is still dark to irrigate and weed her crop. She has been doing potato and maize farming for many years, and she enjoys every bit of it. This business feeds her family and gives them income to do other things.

Her challenge has been limited working capital to grow her farm. With this loan, Lucy will buy seeds, fertilizer, and pay for labor for tilling the land, planting and weeding. This will boost her business, as she will have a bumper harvest at the end of the season. Her profits will be used to pay her loan and support her family better.

Lucy has taken three loans so far and paid them on-time. This is her fourth loan. Her dream is to grow her farm and educate her children to a university level.
