Ann's story

A few years ago, Ann started farming on a small piece of land in a remote village in the Bungoma area of Kenya. Today, this humble mother sells milk and a variety of food crops. In Kenya, agriculture is one of the most competitive industries, especially due to the high cost of operations necessary to improve farming. Such costs include the cost of land acquisition and inputs, which have skyrocketed.

To meet the high costs of inputs, farmers have been forced to borrow from financial institutions that sometimes impose very complicated procedures in loan distribution. Some farmers, especially women, end up being disadvantaged.

Ann is seeking a 90,000 KES loan, which she will use to pay for farm inputs and hired labor to grow more crops. It takes a lot for a smallholder farmer to risk limited resources to expand a farm. With your help, Ann will be able to settle the high cost of farm inputs necessary for expansion.

A significant portion of the profits will be reinvested in the business to fuel growth as Ann sets a good foundation for her family. She hopes to be able to progress as a female smallholder farmer and have a more stable income.
