A loan helped to buy more fertilizer to boost the fertility of the farm for quality production.


Ruth's story

Ruth is a 50-year-old married woman. She has six children. She describes herself to be honest.

Ruth operates a farm, where she grows and sells cereals, tea leaves, and vegetables, and she sells milk from her dairy farm as well. She has been involved in this business for over six years. Her business is located in a good area and her primary customers are locals from Kericho, Kenya. She describes her biggest business challenge to be inadequate working capital.

She will use the 50,000 KES loan to buy more fertilizer to boost the fertility of the farm for quality production. Her business goal is to have a larger farm within five years. She hopes that in the future, she will be financially stable.

This is Ruth's fourth loan with SMEP Microfinance Bank. Previous loans were repaid successfully. She will use the anticipated profits to buy more farming inputs.
