Zipora's story

The Kitale area of Kenya, which is in the Rift Valley, is the home to many smallholder farmers. It is endowed with natural streams and green vegetation. The greatest challenge that those smallholders face is lack of access to a reliable source of finance. Zipora is a poor woman and one of these residents. She has many years of experience in mixed farming. On the farm, she has dairy cows and a small garden. She perseveres because she wants to provide a better future for her family. Zipora has realized a market gap in her village and wants to start a grocery store supplying fruit and vegetables to the local residents.

Zipora is borrowing this loan to buy fruit and vegetables for the grocery business. She will use her market knowledge to fix a good market price for her products. The additional profits she earns will be saved for the education of her child as well as for loan repayment. Zipora will also help other farmers in her place of residence since she will create a good market for their commodities. Employment will therefore be created in this village. This can only come true if you extend your goodwill to her and lend to this industrious woman today!

You can help this mother with a loan and help her be closer to her goals.
