Dorcas's loan finished fundraising, but these other borrowers need your support

A loan helped to buy farm inputs such as high-quality seeds and good fertilizer to help a single mom improve her crop production so she can make profits to secure her children's future.

Dorcas's story

As the first quarter of 2018 is almost over, Dorcas (a single mom) has made resolutions, and one of them is to double her crop production this year and also buy more land to increase her farming. Dorcas lives in the Eldoret area of Kenya. She is blessed with lovely children, who are her greatest motivators. She perseveres because she wants to provide them with a better future. Dorcas, herself, was unable to study because of her family's poverty. However, she never gave up and she has been practicing farming for the past 10 years. Dorcas has always had a liking for farming. She has even nicknamed one of her cows! She is a very proud farmer, especially when she is milking her cows. She also keeps animals on her farm. Dorcas also practices crop farming, but she has not been making good profits because of poor farming inputs. That is why she is seeking a loan to buy farm inputs. Through the loan, she will be able to purchase high quality seeds, good fertilizer, and pesticides that she will use to greatly improve her crop production. Modern farming requires the use of modern techniques, and high quality seeds will ensure a bumper harvest and increased profits. Dorcas is very forward-looking, 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.
