Jane's loan finished fundraising, but these other borrowers need your support

A loan helped to purchase farm inputs such as high-quality seeds and nutrient-rich fertilizers to boost her yields and eventually, through increased profits, improve her standard of living.

Jane's story

Jane is 56 years old and lives with her husband in the Nyahururu area of Kenya. She is blessed with four children, who are her greatest motivators. She perseveres because she wants to provide a better future for them.

Jane was unable to study for a professional career because of her family's economic situation. However, she never gave up and she has been practicing farming for the past few years. Jane has always liked farming. She also practices crop farming, but she has not been earning good profit because of poor farming inputs. This is why Jane is seeking a loan to buy farm inputs.

Through this loan, she will be able to purchase high-quality seeds, good fertilizer, and pesticides 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.

Jane is a visionary, and her goal for the season is to boost her crop production over the previous year's. All this can be achieved through lenders’ help and goodwill. Jane believes that through this loan, she will be able to give her children a solid educational background, and that it will lift her out of poverty. Make a $25 loan or more, and push Jane’s dream closer to reality.
