Caroline's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped a single mom to buy certified fertilizers to expand her tea farm and generate more profits for her family, so as to improve their living standards in 2019.

Caroline's story

Caroline is a 29-year-old single mom of 2. She is pictured on her tea crop farm.

When Caroline started mixed farming a few years ago, her efforts only seemed to look like a drop. Later on, her efforts bore her fruits, and today she feels like she has gone through a long process when it comes to agricultural production. This is a result of her passion, determination, and work ethic. Her primary source of income is crop farming.

Caroline requested a loan of KES 60,000, which she will use to buy certified nutrient fertilizers to expand her tea crop farm. By scaling up her crop business, she will reduce production costs and increase output.

Caroline's strategy is to use the returns from the investment to pay for more farm inputs, a lack of which is a major problem that leads to the closing down of many farms due to poor quantity and quality of yields.

Therefore, Caroline will be able to increase her profits. This will allow her to improve her standard of living, as well as that of her beautiful children.

Caroline wishes all her lenders a happy month.
