Hellen's story

Hellen is 49 years old. She is polite, devoted, responsible, and hardworking. Hellen raises animals and farms tea and horticultural crops, which is work that she began out of economic necessity. She was born into a family where farming skills were passed on from one generation to the next. Since she did not have any other alternatives from which to earn income, she ventured into farming. Through her continuous involvement in crop and animal farming, Hellen is able to provide meals to her family twice a day.

Currently, Hellen is seeking a loan to buy seeds and begin horticultural farming. The mutual benefit between her horticulture farm and her dairy enterprise will help her make a greater profit. Income from the dairy farm will pay for horticultural expenses as crops mature; likewise, the lump sum income from crop farming will allow her to buy more cows and plant more crops in the coming seasons. This investment is sure to have a big impact on Hellen’s family's livelihood.
