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

A loan helped to purchase farming inputs, such as high-nutrient fertilizers and certified seeds, to improve her farm yield and make more profits from sales to support her family.

Lonah's story

Lonah is visionary, hardworking, and most of all, focused. She resides in the Kapsowar area of Kenya. She has been practicing farming for the past few years. Over the years she has been farming, she has made big strides in life. She has been able to educate all of her children. Her primary sources of income have been milk, crops, and some small business ventures that help her make ends meet.

Lonah was unable to study to attain a professional career owing to the economic situation faced by her family. However, she has never given up and has been skillfully practicing farming. She is a very proud farmer, especially when she is milking her cows. Through her dairy cows, she is able to get rich creamy milk, which helps support her family.

Lonah also practices crop farming, but she has not been making good profits because of poor farming inputs. She has requested a loan, which she will use to buy farm inputs, such as high-quality seeds and good fertilizer, that she will use to greatly improve her crop production. Modern farming requires the use of modern techniques. Using high-quality seeds will assure her of a bumper harvest and, hence, increased levels of profit.
