Reba's story

Wonderful people,

Reba is very clear about what she wants in life. She is determined to get ahead and have a good life. She is a smallholder farmer from Eldoret in the central region of Kenya. Reba owns a small parcel of farmland. On this farm, she practices mixed farming. This mother keeps dairy animals and grows maize and vegetables. She has 11 years of experience in farming under her belt.

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 loan distribution. Some farmers, especially women, end up in hopelessness, despondency, and lack of morale to invest in agriculture.

Reba has decided to request a loan which she intends to use to buy farming inputs, such as nutrient-rich fertilizers, and certified seeds. These will help her to improve productivity on her farm, and make more income from sales. She plans to use the accumulated profits to pay school fees for her children. She is the only voice of hope for her children. She really counts on your help and understanding because she knows you have got her back.
