Agnes's story

Agnes is a widow who is humble and resides in a remote village in Kitale. As the only breadwinner for her children, she has been practicing mixed farming. Her primary sources of income have been milk, eggs, and crops. She also engages in a small business to supplement the meager income she earns through farming.

Although she has been making profits from farming, she has identified a market segment for selling cereals. The only big challenge she faces is the lack of funds. She is requesting a loan to buy cereals. She intends to buy different varieties of cereals; that is, maize, sorghum, rice, wheat, barley, and millet to sell in the local market.

The market for the cereals is never a problem because the demand is always high, and she plans to take advantage of that. Because of the good relationship she has with her neighbors, she plans to increase her market by using word-of-mouth to reach more customers and markets.

You can help this widow achieve her dreams with this loan, which will surely bring big profits.
