Dorcas's story

Dorcas (39 year old mom of 2) is an inspiring woman who lives in Kerugoya in the central region of Kenya. She is a very hard-working farmer engaged in mixed farming and dairy.

Dorcas is married to a hard-working and enterprising hubby who helps with her daily farm duties. Their union has been blessed with lovely children. Dorcas and her husband use the profits they obtain from locally selling milk and crops to pay their one child's school fees who is school going.

However, the quality of Dorcas’s crops has dwindled due to poor farm inputs. This issue has brought about low demand for her crops and has negatively impacted her sales. Dorcas is seeking a helping hand to purchase farming inputs such as certified seeds and nutrient-rich fertilizer to boost the quality of her produce.

With the inputs, Dorcas is assured of a bumper harvest that will open new markets for her crops and increase her profits. Increased profits will, in turn, elevate her family's standard of living.
