Tavitha's story

Get to know Tavitha, who is very proactive in her approach to her farm decisions. She takes all responsibilities in her farm at heart and works towards her goals. Other than doing some small business, Tavitha is a very hardworking farmer who has been farming for the past five years. She has gained so much experience through those years of farming. Tavitha practices mixed farming. That is, she grows maize and keeps dairy cows, and through these activities she has been able to earn a decent and honest income.

In Kenya, agriculture is one of the most competitive industries and especially due to the high costs of operations necessary to improve farming. Such costs include the cost of land acquisition and inputs which have always skyrocketed. To meet the high costs of inputs, farmers have been forced to borrow from financial institutions which sometimes impose very complicated procedures in loan distribution. Some farmers and especially women end up in hopelessness and despondency, lacking the morale to invest in agriculture.

Tavitha is seeking a loan to purchase farming inputs such as high-nutrient fertilizers and certified seeds, to improve her farm yield and make more profits from sales to support her family. To others, it might just be a mere loan, but to Tavitha it’s the biggest opportunity she will have this season of changing her life. Kindly lend to her today!
