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

A loan helped to boost her dairy farm and hire a vet for her cows.

Gladys's story

Gladys is 36 years old and she lives in Kericho with her children. Her husband passed away leaving her to care for her 3 children on her own. It has not been easy but her children and her business give her the strength to carry on as her business has enabled her to cater for her family's needs. She runs a dairy farm and is requesting for a loan to boost her dairy farm with feeds and other inputs and also hire vets for her cows. This will boost her profits which will help her in repaying her loan. Her dream is to grow her business in order to be able to support her children much better.
