Jael's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to buy different types of cereals such as corn, sorghum, maize, and beans to sell in her village and, with the profits, improve her living conditions.

Jael's story

Late last year, Kenya experienced political tension and violence. Jael suffered from the tensions, but she is on her way to recovery from the challenging times. Jael is a female smallholder farmer full of dreams and aspirations. She resides in a remote village in the lush hills of Bungoma, in the Rift Valley region of Kenya. As the key breadwinner in her family, she has been practicing mixed farming for the past few years. Because of the immense knowledge she has of farming, she commands a lot of respect from other farmers in her village. Her primary source of income has been from milk and crops. She also engages in a small business to supplement the meager income she earns through farming. Although she has been making profits from farming, she has identified a “niche market” for selling cereals. The only big challenge she faces is the lack of funds. She is requesting a loan to buy cereals. She intends to buy a variety of cereals such as corn, sorghum, rice, wheat, barley, and millet to sell in the local market. The market for cereals is never a problem because the demand is always high, and she plans to take advantage of that. Because of the good relationship she has with her neighbors, she plans to increase her market by using word of mouth to reach more customers and markets. You can help this woman achieve her dreams with this loan, which will surely bring big profits.
