Mercy's story

Meet Mercy, a 23-year-old farmer. Mercy is a hardworking small-scale farmer who is not daunted by the difficult situations she has had to face in her lifetime. Mercy lives in Siongiroi with her family. This area has good rainfall patterns and this favours farmers like her.

Mercy is married to a hardworking husband who helps her in her farming, and their union has been blessed with cute children. Mercy has been farming for the past nine years and, throughout those years, she has made several achievements. She obtains her income through selling vegetables and cereals at her local market. Her customers are demanding cereals more than other products.

The Siongiroi area has a ready market for cereals, and Mercy wants to take advantage of that by buying more cereals to sell in the local market. That is why Mercy is seeking this loan to buy different varieties of cereals (lentils, cow peas, and rice) to sell in the local market and improve her living conditions.

This loan will cause smiling faces on her entire household this 2018.
