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

A loan helped to buy quality farming inputs, such as certified seeds and nutrient-rich fertilizers, which she plans to use on her corn farm to improve her production in 2019.

Jane's story

Jane is a responsible, 57-year-old woman of four children. She is the proud mother of cute children.

Jane is an active woman who works in agricultural activities, a skill that she inherited from her parents. In addition to engaging in some small business activities, Jane has been a very hardworking mixed farmer for the past few years, keeping dairy cows and growing vegetables and corn.

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 the cost of land acquisition and inputs such as seeds and fertilizers. To meet the high costs of inputs, farmers have been forced to borrow from financial institutions which sometimes impose very complicated procedures for loan distribution.

That is why Jane is seeking a loan to purchase farming inputs, such as hybrid seeds, to boost the quality of her crop farming, earn more profits, and elevate her standard of living. Through this loan, Jane will be assured of a bumper corn crop harvest, which will mean more profits and income.

Jane hopes you will consider her appeal for the loan. It would mean a lot to her and her family.
