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

A loan helped to buy fruits and vegetables in order to open a grocery store and make more profits to support her family.

Agnes's story

Rural smallholder women in Nyamira are helping to pave the way for a better future. Meet Agnes, a single mother of three children. She is at the forefront when it comes to supporting her family as the primary breadwinner. She is a crop and dairy farmer.

Agnes is borrowing this loan to buy fruits and vegetables to open a grocery business. She will use her market knowledge to fix a good market price for her products. The additional profits she will earn will be saved for the education of her children, as well as be used for loan repayment.

Agnes will also help other farmers in her place of residence, since she will create a good market for their commodities. Employment will therefore be created in this village. This can only come true if you extend your good will to her. Kindly lend to this industrious woman today!
