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

A loan helped to buy fruits and vegetables for her grocery store, which will help this single mother support her six children.

Eusilah's story

Wonderful people. Eusilah is a single mother of six children who always keeps her head high even at times of great difficulty. She is a woman who carries all of the responsibilities of parenting on her shoulders. Eusilah lives in Eldoret, Kenya, a town surrounded by prime agricultural lands that favor large-scale grain farming, dairy, and horticultural farming. She practices mixed and dairy farming. She also owns a grocery shop where she sells grocery goods to her customers. Thanks to her daily efforts, three of her six children are currently in school.

Eusilah is requesting this loan to buy fruits and vegetables for her grocery business. She will use her market knowledge to fix a good market price for her products. The additional profits she earns will be saved for the education of her children and for loan repayment.

Eusilah will also help farmers in her place of residence since she will create a good market for their commodities. Employment will therefore be created in this village. This can only come true if you extend your good will to her. Kindly lend to this industrious woman today!
