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


A loan helped to purchase farming inputs such as high-nutrient fertilizers and certified seeds, to improve her farm yield and make more profits from sales to support her family.


Mary's story

Mary’s curiosity and natural abilities made her a successful farmer. She works hard to meet the demands of her small family (husband and children) as well as her farm requirements. Mary has been working on her farm for 10 years. Through farming, Mary is able to meet the basic needs of her family. She also owns a small shop.

In Kenya, agriculture is one of the most competitive industries and 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 and especially women end up in hopelessness and despondency, lacking the morale to invest in agriculture.

Mary is seeking a loan to purchase farming inputs such as high-nutrient fertilizers and certified seeds, to improve her farm yield and make more profits from sales to support her family.

This intervention will help her fill the increasing demand for food in the market and, in the process, generate more income to repay the loan debt and improve the quality of life for her family.

To others, it might just be a mere loan, but to Mary it’s the biggest opportunity she will have this season of changing her life.

Kindly lend to her today!
