Elizabeth's story

Balancing farming and parenting has not been an easy task for Elizabeth, a hardworking woman. Elizabeth is a smallholder farmer full of dreams and aspirations in her life. She resides in a remote village in the lush hills of Nyamira, in the Western region of Kenya.

As the key breadwinner of her family, she has been practicing mixed farming for the past eight years. Because of the immense knowledge she has of farming, she commands a lot of respect from other farmers in her village.

Elizabeth’s primary sources of income have been milk, eggs, and crops. She also engages in a small business to supplement the meager income she earns through farming. Although she has been making profits from farming, she has identified a market segment for selling cereals. The only big challenge she faces is the lack of funds.

Elizabeth is requesting a loan to buy cereals. She intends to buy different varieties of cereals, such as maize, sorghum, rice, wheat, barley and millet, to sell in the local market. The market for cereals is never a problem because the demand is always high, and she plans to take advantage of that.

Building on the good relationship Elizabeth has with her neighbors, she plans to increase her market by using word-of-mouth to reach more customers and markets. You can help this woman achieve her dreams with this loan, which will surely bring her big profits.
