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

A loan helped to purchase farming inputs such as fertilizers and hybrid seeds to boost her horticulture produce, and through generated profits, to make her life meaningful.

Grace's story

This is Grace (a mother of three children born in 1982). She is a woman with a glorious history of valor, perseverance, courage and the ability to overcome extreme adversities. She lives in a small and humble village in the Kitale area of Kenya. As the key breadwinner for her family, she has been practicing mixed farming for the past five years. Her primary sources of income have been milk, and crops. Although she makes a profit from farming, she would like to increase her income by buying quality inputs to plant so that the farm produces more crops to harvest.

As the population of people in Kitale continues to grow, demand for primary crops has increased dramatically. To boost production and reduce the number of people who consistently go hungry, there is a need to use modern farming technologies such as modern farming inputs.

Therefore, she is seeking this loan to purchase farming inputs such as fertilizers and hybrid seeds to boost the quality of her produce, earn more profits, and elevate her living standard. Grace's deep remote village is one of the country's most populated regions and has a high demand for food. This means that the loan will increase her profits and at the same time satisfy the demand for horticulture products there. She believes that this loan will be of help. Kindly lend to her and make her life meaningful with just a loan.
