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

A loan helped to buy certified fertilizer and expand her corn farm to meet the high demand for corn in her village, allowing her to increase her income to pay for her children's education.

Viola's story

Viola, a 37-year-old mother, has two lovely children. She is a woman with a big heart, and her tenderness and her love for farming exceed all limits.

Viola is a wise farmer who is respected by her neighbors and fellow farmers as a mentor. She farms a small plot of land in the lush green hills of Eldoret, which is in the Rift Valley region of Kenya. For the past few years, she has been involved in mixed farming, growing beans and maize and keeping dairy cows.

Through these activities, Viola has been able to earn a decent and honest income. Because of the passion she has for farming, she has even nicknamed one of the cows that she really enjoys taking care of.

Although Viola has been making profits through farming, not everything has been easy for this humble and industrious mother. Her farm has not been producing as much of a corn harvest lately, due to a lack of fertilizer and the presence of pests and disease. Thus, she is seeking a loan to buy quality fertilizer so she can expand her corn farm to meet the high demand for corn in her village. This will increase her income so she can pay for her children's education.

Viola hopes you will consider her appeal for this loan; it would mean a lot to her and her family.
