Alice's story

Alice, 67, is a mother four who has been farming for many years. She lives in Kitale, a land of seemingly never ending beauty.

Alice loves farming because it is her only way of satisfying her family. She is a very focused and determined woman. In Kenya, agriculture is one of the most competitive industries, especially due to the high costs of operations necessary to improve farming. Such costs include the cost of land acquisition and inputs, which have always skyrocketed. To meet the high costs of inputs, farmers have been forced to borrow from financial institutions, which sometimes impose very complicated procedures in loan distribution. Some farmers, especially women, end up being disadvantaged.

Alice has decided to request a loan, which she intends to use to buy farming inputs, such as nutrient-rich fertilizers, and certified seeds. She is the only voice of hope for her children. She really counts on your help and understanding because she knows you have got her back.
