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

A loan helped to buy farm inputs to improve the productivity of a single woman borrower with good credit, leading to increased profits.

Linner's story

Mothers work hard and sacrifice their energy so that the lives of their children might be better. That is why the world celebrates mothers globally every year. Meet Linner (31 years old mom of 2), a resourceful mother. She is a rural farmer who hails from the Kericho region of Kenya.

Linner manages her farmland to take care of her family. She has found this to be a challenging yet rewarding occupation. Through the activities she carries out on her farm, she is able to support her family. Her desire to give her family a decent lifestyle is what drives her to work long hours on her farm. This allows the family to have a comfortable life.

Although Linner has been earning some income from her farm, not everything has been easy for this enterprising woman. The output of produce from her farm has been reduced due to a lack of fertilizer and good seeds, as well as the presence of pests and diseases. This is why Linner is seeking a loan. She will buy farm inputs such as seeds and nutrient-rich fertilizers to improve her farm and make more income for her family.

By using this loan, Linner will be able to expand her enterprise. She hopes you will consider her request for this loan. It will change her life and the welfare of her family.
