Margaret's story

Meet Margaret, a 39-year-old mother of four, two of whom are school going children.

Margaret’s life offers inspiring life lessons. She is a strong-minded woman who lives on her farm in a remote village near Machakos town in Kenya. She is a progressive woman who likes trying new things. Not many women find it easy to live in Machakos, but as an ambitious woman, she has made great progress. Margaret is a crop farmer, although she also rears dairy cows.

In the modern world, agriculture has become exceedingly dynamic, requiring upgrades to the kind of supplies that are being used in the sector today. On this note, there is a need to use improved farming supplies for effective production.

Margaret requested a loan, which she will use to buy farming supplies, such as hybrid seeds and fertilizer. The returns from the investment will change her life and that of her entire household, as she will use the additional income to raise their living standards. Margaret has a great desire to succeed and to better her life.
