A loan helped to purchase farming inputs to boost the quality of her produce and help her earn more profits.

Jane's story

Jane, pictured above, is a mother who runs a prosperous agribusiness enterprise, where she practices vegetable, banana, and dairy farming. She is a hardworking mother, who despite the ups and downs she faces in parenting, never abandoned her three children. She is a loving mum who moves from pillar to post for the welfare of her family.

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 land acquisition and inputs, which have always skyrocketed. To meet the high costs of inputs, farmers have been forced to borrow from financial institutions, that sometimes impose very complicated procedures for loan distribution. Some farmers, especially women, end up in hopelessness, despondency and lack of morale to invest in agriculture.
That is why she is seeking a loan to purchase farming inputs such as fertilizers and hybrid seeds to boost the quality of her produce, earn more profits, and elevate her living standard.

Through this loan, Jane will be assured of a bumper harvest, which will mean more profits and income. Using this loan, she will be able to expand her enterprise.
Jane hopes you will consider her appeal for the loan. It would mean a lot to her and her family.
