Beatrice's story

Slow but sure is what Beatrice values most in her farming business. She is a farmer who has fought a thousand battles, but she has always triumphed. She hails from a remote village in Nandi Hills, Kenya. She has defied the common thinking among Kenyans that agriculture is for the older generation.

Beatrice is happily married, and she and her husband are blessed with lovely children. Her primary source of income is milk, and she also plants maize on their farm.

Although she earns handsome profits from farming, Beatrice faces one big challenge: the high prices of fertilizers, seedlings, and other farming inputs. This is a result of the monopoly that is enjoyed by the only agro-vet shop in her area.

Beatrice is requesting a loan to start her own agro-vet shop. Her remote area has only one agro dealer who caters to many smallholder farmers who solely depend on him for agricultural inputs. The agro dealer has been making a big profit from farmers by charging them extra, since he enjoys a monopoly.

Beatrice wants to change this and seize the business opportunity. With your loan, she will start an agro-vet shop and tap into the potential agricultural market. Beatrice will also help the smallholder farmers in her area who have, for a long time, been having a serious problem accessing affordable farm inputs.
