Sarah's story

Sarah is a repeat borrower mother of two children living in Thika, a remote area located on a gentle plain before the ascent into the central highlands of Kenya. She is 37 years old and has a lot of skills and experience in farming. To rescue her family from abject poverty, Sarah is involved in farming activities such as growing crops and rearing dairy animals.

To earn additional income, Evangeline helps arrange the logistics of getting farm produce from local farmers in her area to their buyers. She earns commissions on these sales. She has been doing this business for over a decade. She continually makes an effort to build strong relationships, because reputation is everything in her line of work. Because Sarah can arrange a sale more easily than regular farmers, she prefers to deal with larger volumes of produce. She is seeking a loan to buy cereals from farmers to resell at fair prices. She can use her better understanding of the market conditions and prices to sell the cereals at a profit. Your loan will help Sarah’s clients to focus on production rather than sales, and it will help Sarah's family to earn a better income to uplift their livelihood. Support her dream by giving Sarah a loan! Sarah really counts on your help and hopes for your warm response.
