Emily's story

Emily is a 45-year-old mom of 3. She is the true definition of a hard worker and an ever-smiling, happy mother.

She is a mixed farmer in Litein, growing different crops and dairy farming. These commercial activities place her in a better position to engage in other agricultural businesses, which she does.

In Kenya, agriculture is one of the most competitive industries, especially due to the high cost of operations necessary to improve farming. Such costs include the cost of land acquisition and inputs, which have skyrocketed. To meet the high cost of inputs, farmers have been forced to borrow from financial institutions, which sometimes impose very complicated procedures in loan distribution.

Emily is seeking a loan to buy farm inputs such as certified seeds and nutrient-rich fertilizer to improve her crop farming. Your loan will enable her to improve her production through the use of quality farm inputs.

This intervention will help her meet the increasing demand for food in the market, generate more income to repay the loan debt, and improve her family's quality of life.
