Mary's story

Parents sacrifice their time and energy to ensure their children get a good quality of life. That is what Mary does. She was born in 1974 and is a mom of seven; among them, six are school-going. She is pictured outside her house.

She is the mother of lovely children and is a rural smallholder farmer from the Kapsowar area of Kenya. She is married to a fellow farmer. Her family's main income source is growing different crops.

Mary is seeking a KES 120,000 loan, which she will use to purchase farm inputs, seeds and fertilizers. Mary wants to use her idle land. With the good climatic conditions and good infrastructure in her region, she believes she will be able to produce enough output. She will transport the produce to her local market and sell it to make profits. The profits she will make will be used to meet the family’s basic needs.

With your intervention, Mary can afford the high cost of farm inputs necessary for her enterprise. Your loan will go a long way in changing the life of this woman smallholder farmer.
