Alphina's story

Meet Alphina (pictured standing in front of her door and behind a loan officer). With her great drive and perseverance, Alphina has been a successful mixed farmer and has been able to educate and support her children. Alphina is a proud owner of a small parcel of land on which she has been practicing mixed farming for the past ten years. Like many other farmers in the region, Alphina grows tea, which is one of the commonly grown crops in Kericho, and she also keeps cows. Although Alphina has been making profits through farming, not everything has been easy for this humble and industrious mother. Her farm has not been producing much of a harvest lately due to the lack of fertilizer and good seeds and the presence of pests and disease.

Alphina is seeking this loan to buy farming inputs such as certified seeds and rich nutrient fertilizers to improve productivity on her farm, make more profits, and clear an outstanding school fee debt for her children. She has always wanted her children to have a successful future and this loan will help her achieve that.
