Lydia's story

The nice woman you see on this picture is Lydia. She is eager to succeed. She lives with her husband in the Kapsowar area of Kenya. She has lovely children, who are her greatest motivation in life. She perseveres because she wants to provide a better future for them.

Her main income source is milk from her dairy farm. However, she is also involved in other agricultural activities such as growing bananas, vegetables, fruits and grains.

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

Lydia is seeking a loan to buy farm inputs such as seeds and high-nutrient fertilizers. Your loan will enable her to improve her production through the use of quality farm inputs. Help this assiduous mother to accomplish all her dreams with this loan!
