Dorcas's story

Dorcas is a hardworking mother of three children who is very hopeful of success. She is a mixed farmer who practices her trade in Nyamira, a town with vast potential due to the number of small farms and agricultural enterprises in the area. Thanks to her daily efforts, she has managed to give her children a good start by providing them with a quality education.

Dorcas has a farm where she grows crops and raises livestock. She also earns some income from a personal business. Dorcas never had a formal education and is content with the farming lifestyle. The Nyamira area is favorable for farming, but the major problem is unreliable rainfall.

Dorcas wants to change her situation, so she is requesting a loan to buy a water tank. The tank will enable her to capture rainwater that would otherwise go to waste during the rainy season. With this loan, her farm will be assured of constant irrigation and increased productivity. Dorcas is always working to improve her family’s living conditions. Her biggest dreams are to become independent and support her family by herself, to secure her children’s future, and to buy a home.
