Salina's story

Meet Salina, a single mother who will always move from pillar to paw to ensure that her children never lack anything in their life. Despite a series of life’s ups and downs that she goes through, she has never neglected her responsibilities. Looking at her, one can only see her successes but not the personal sacrifices that she has made for her children. Salina has always valued every minute of her life. She is a dairy and crop farmer. Through agriculture, she has made her life meaningful and obtains maximum benefits.

The quality of Salina’s crops has dwindled due to the use of poor farm inputs. This has brought about low demand for her crops and has negatively impacted her sales. In the modern world, agriculture has become exceedingly dynamic, making the kind of inputs that are being used in the sector today upgraded. On this note there is need to use improved farming inputs for effective production. Salina is seeking a loan to purchase farming inputs, such as fertilizers and hybrid seeds, to boost the quality of her produce. Salina is assured of a bumper harvest, which will open new markets for her crops and, subsequently, increase her profits. This will elevate her standard of living as well as that of her beautiful children.
