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

A loan helped to buy farming inputs, such as hybrid seeds and fertilizer, to improve her maize farm's output and to make profits to educate her children.

Winnie's story

Winnie's determination and commitment serve as her greatest strengths in achieving her success. Her husband and three children are her greatest motivators. Being the sole breadwinner in her household, this woman works hard to ensure that she achieves her goals and objectives.

Winnie owns a small parcel of land. On her farm, she practices mixed farming. She keeps dairy animals and grows a variety of crops, maize, and vegetables, which she has been doing for more than four years.

The biggest challenge for farmers, especially in Kericho, is the high cost of farming inputs. Most farmers are forced to use organic farming methods, and with time the fertility of the soil is lost.

Winnie is seeking this loan so that she can buy farming inputs, such as fertilizer, to improve her maize farm. The returns on the investment will change her life and that of her entire household, because she will use the additional income to raise their living standards and to pay for her children's education. Winnie has a great desire to succeed, and she thanks her lenders for their generous support.
