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

A loan helped to pay for farm inputs and hire laborers so she can grow more crops on the farm, make more profits from sales and, as a single mum, set a good foundation for her children.

Jane's story

Jane’s success was not an accident but was the result of her perseverance and determination. She is single and resides with her children in a remote village in Nkubu, Kenya. This area has tough living conditions, and to survive you must have tough skin. Jane has defied all the odds and has been engaged in farming for the past six years. Her primary sources of income are poultry, vegetables, crops and animal farming. Her work brings home important income. She gets help with the work from her family members.

Jane is seeking a 60,000 KES loan, which she will use to pay for farm inputs and to hire laborers in order to grow more crops on the farm. It takes a lot for a smallholder farmer to risk limited available resources to expand the farm business. With your help, Jane will be able to pay the high cost of farm inputs necessary for expansion.

A significant portion of the profits will be invested back into the business to fuel growth, as she wants to set a good example and foundation for her children. She really hopes for your help and contribution, and she thanks you in advance.
