Florence's story

Greetings from Nkubu, Kenya! Florence’s story is of an honest, hardworking, warrior woman who gives everything to raise her two children.

Florence is a hardworking farmer and salesperson who has access to many sellers in the food crop production business. On her own farm, she keeps cows and poultry, and has a small cash crop garden and trees as well. In her deep remote village, agriculture is one of the most competitive activities, especially due to the high costs of operations necessary to improve farming. Such costs include the cost of land acquisition and inputs. To meet the high costs of inputs, farmers have been forced to borrow from financial institutions that sometimes impose very complicated procedures in loan distribution. Some farmers, especially women, are really disadvantaged.

Florence is humbly seeking a loan to buy farm inputs. Through this loan, she will be able to purchase high quality seed and nutrient-rich fertilizers that she will use to improve her crop production. Modern farming requires the use of modern techniques, and high quality seeds will assure her of a bumper harvest and increased profits. Her dream is to build a modern house.
