Joan's story

Joan is pictured above smiling, because she knows that International Women’s Day is around the corner and that she will be celebrated through this loan. She lives with her husband in the Kitale area of Kenya. She is blessed with lovely children, who are her greatest motivators. She perseveres because she wants to provide a better future for them.

Unable to study for a professional career because of the economic situation in her family, Joan never gave up, and she has been practicing farming for the past 10 years. She has always had a liking for farming. She has even nicknamed one of her cows and is a very proud farmer, especially when she is milking her cows. She also practices crop farming, but she has not been making good profits because of poor farming inputs.

That is why Joan is seeking a loan to buy farm inputs. Through this loan, she will be able to purchase high-quality seed and fertilizers that she will use to greatly improve her crop production. Modern farming requires the use of modern techniques, and high-quality seeds will assure her of a bumper harvest and increased profits.

Joan is very visionary, and her goal for the season is to boost her crop production over the previous year. All this can be achieved through lenders’ help and goodwill. Joan believes that through this loan she will be able to give her children a solid educational background. This loan will lift her out of poverty.
