Hilda's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!


A loan helped to purchase farm inputs (hybrid seeds and nutrient-rich fertilizers) to help a mom produce a good harvest that will support her children.


Hilda's story

This is Hilda, a mother of two children, who is very hardworking and determined to succeed. With responsibilities of parenting on her shoulders, Hilda injects passion and enthusiasm in her work. She is one of the women in Kenya who represents the country’s best hope of achieving a future of sustainable development. Hilda practices mixed farming and obtains her income through selling agricultural produce in her local market.

Though she dearly loves crop farming, her farm is at risk of attack by crop pests and diseases. To a poor rural farmer, treatment of crop diseases requires an increase in the total operational costs to the extent that, in most cases, the amount of capital invested to produce a desired yield surpasses the output harvested. The remedy is to use certified seeds that are resistant to pests and diseases.

Through this loan, she will be able to purchase farm inputs (hybrid seeds and nutrient-rich fertilizers) to produce a good harvest that will support her children and improve her housing conditions. Hilda hopes for your understanding and help. She's very thankful in advance.
