Emily's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to buy farm implements.

Emily's story

“When small scale farmers are given access to credit they are very hard working,” says Emily, a smallholder farmer of both crops and livestock. For the past five years, she has been actively involved and making great profits in farming.

Through her dairy cows, she is able to get between 10-15 liters a day, and this helps her support her family. Emily also practices crop farming, but she has not been making good profits because of poor farming implements. This is why she is kindly seeking a loan to buy farm implements.

Through the loan, she will be able to buy high-quality seeds, good fertilizer and pesticides that she will use to greatly improve her crop production. Modern farming requires the use of modern techniques. Using high-quality seeds will assure her of a bumper harvest and hence, increased profit levels.

Emily is a visionary, and her goal for the season is to boost her crop production and be able to get more crop output than the previous year.

Emily believes that through the loan, she will turn around her family life and be able to give her children a solid educational background
