A loan helped to pay for farm inputs and to hire laborers for her farm to earn more income and set a good foundation for her children.

Pauline's story

Pauline (born in 1997 and a mom of two school-going children) is an agricultural producer. She is committed to the future and the progress of her family. She is a woman who dedicates herself to practicing mixed farming (crop and dairy) in the Bungoma area of Kenya. She works between eight and 10 hours a day. Pauline does this because she is pursuing the dream of purchasing her own home. She is a very committed mother who perseveres until she reaches her goals.

She has always enjoyed farming. She loves dairy and crop farming. That is why Pauline is seeking a loan to buy farm inputs and to hire laborers.

Through this loan, she will be able to purchase high-quality seeds and good fertilizer that she will use to greatly improve her crop production. Modern farming requires the use of modern techniques and high-quality seeds will assure her of a bumper harvest and increased profits. She wants to improve her children’s education through profits from the loan.

Make a loan of $25 or more, and push her dream closer to reality.
