Janeffer's story

Janeffer’s life demands struggles. She is a single mother who lives in Litein and has been working on her farm for eight years. Through farming, she is able to meet the basic needs of her ageing parents and children.

In Kenya, agriculture is one of the most competitive industries, especially due to the high costs of operations necessary to improve farming. Such costs include the cost of land acquisition and inputs, which have always skyrocketed. To meet the high costs of inputs, farmers have been forced to borrow from financial institutions which sometimes impose very complicated procedures in loans distribution. Some farmers, and especially women, end up in hopelessness, despondency and lack of morale to invest in agriculture.

Janeffer is requesting a loan to buy farm inputs such as quality certified seeds and fertilizer. Her loan will enable her to improve her production through the use of quality farm inputs. This intervention will help Janeffer fill the increasing demand for food in the market and in the process, generate more income to repay her loan debt and improve the quality of life for her family. To others it might just be a mere loan, but to Janeffer it’s the biggest opportunity she will have this season of changing her life. Kindly lend to her today and brighten up her life this festive season.
