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

A loan helped to pay for farm inputs such as fertilizer and certified seeds to improve her farm yield, to generate revenue, and set a good foundation for her school-going children.

Irine's story

Irine (35 years old mom of 3) is a cheerful mother and an enthusiastic person who enjoys and appreciates her life and having a family. She works hard each day and puts all her efforts into her small-scale farming business. Kericho is a rural town known for crop and dairy farming. For the past few years, Irine has been actively involved in mixed farming. Her primary sources of income have been milk and different food crops. She sells her produce to the nearby market and also to neighbors. She has been making positive strides. Although she practices crop and animal farming, Irine has not been making good profits because of poor farming inputs. That is why she is seeking a loan to buy farm inputs such as seeds and fertilizer to improve her crop farm. Through this loan, she will be able to purchase high-quality seeds and good fertilizer that she will use to improve crop production. Modern farming requires the use of modern techniques, and high-quality seeds will assure her of a bumper harvest and increased profits. Her dream is to support her parents. Irine hopes for your understanding and help. She is very thankful in advance.
