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

A loan helped to buy farming inputs such as seeds and fertilizers to improve the quality of her crops and to make more profit to support her family.

Faith's story

Parents sacrifice their time and energy to ensure their children get a good quality of life. That is what Faith (a mom of 2) does. She is the mother of lovely children and is a rural smallholder farmer from the Kerugoya area of Kenya. She is married to a fellow farmer. Her family's main income source is growing different crops.

Faith is seeking a KES 80,000 loan, which she will use to purchase farm inputs, seeds, and fertilizers. Faith 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. Faith 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, Faith 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.
