A loan helped to start an Agrovet business (a shop for farm inputs, such as animal feed, drugs, and pesticide).

Milcah's story

Milcah is a young farmer from a remote village in Eldoret, Kenya. She has defied the common thinking among Kenyans, that agriculture is for the older generation.

Milcah is happily married, and she and her husband are blessed with lovely children. Her primary source of income is milk, and she also plants maize on their farm.

Although she earns handsome profits from farming, Milcah faces one big challenge: the high prices of fertilizer, seedlings, and other farming inputs. This is a result of the monopoly that is enjoyed by the only Agrovet shop in her area.

Milcah is requesting a loan to start her own Agrovet shop. Her remote area has only one agro dealer, who caters to many smallholder farmers who solely depend on him for agricultural inputs. The agro dealer has been making a big profit from farmers by charging them extra, since he enjoys a monopoly.

Milcah wants to change this and seize the business opportunity. With your loan, she will start an Agrovet shop and tap into the potential agricultural market. Milcah will also help the smallholder farmers in her area who have, for a long time, been having a serious problem accessing affordable farm inputs.

You can be part of this dream. Go for it and make a loan.
