Nancy's story

Get to know Nancy. Though Nancy suffered from a poor upbringing, she always appreciates her life and having lovely children. She works hard each day and puts all her efforts into her farming business. She has two children in school pushing her to inject bone-grinding labor on her mixed farm.

Nancy's primary sources of income have been cattle and vegetable farming. She sells her produce to the nearby market and also to neighbours. She has been making positive strides. Although she practices crop and animal farming, she has not been making good profits because of poor farming inputs. That is why she is seeking a loan to buy farm inputs.

Through this loan, she will be able to buy farm inputs such as nutrient-rich fertilizers to improve her crop production and generate more income to elevate the quality of life for her children. Modern farming requires the use of modern techniques, and high-quality seeds will assure her of a bumper harvest and increased profits. Nancy hopes for your understanding and help. Make a $25 loan or more and push Nancy’s dream closer to reality. She's very thankful in advance.
