Monicah's story

Taking a close look at Monicah (a 59-year-old mom of two), one might not realize the kind of hardship she has gone through over the past years of farming. Despite all of the adversities, she has always emerged victorious. Monicah lives in the Engineer area of Kenya. She is blessed with lovely children, who are her greatest motivation. She perseveres, because she wants to provide a better future for them. Her primary sources of income are milk and crops from her farm.

In the modern world, agriculture has become exceedingly dynamic; therefore, the kind of inputs that are being used in the sector today are upgraded. On this note, there is a need to use improved farming inputs for effective production.

Monicah is seeking this loan to buy agrovet products such as drought resistant seeds and organic manure and fertilizers. This loan will enable her to improve her production through the use of quality farm inputs. This intervention will help her fill the increasing demand for food in the market and, in the process, generate more income to repay the loan and elevate her family's quality of life.

Be inspired this season and make spirits bright with this loan!
