Elizabeth's story

Elizabeth, pictured above, is a mother who runs a prosperous agribusiness enterprise in Machakos, the home town of some of the world's most beautiful sculptures. She is a hardworking mother of two children, who despite the ups and downs she faces in parenting never abandoned her children. Elizabeth is the pillar behind her family’s solid reputation. She practices dairy and crop farming on her farm.

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 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 for loan distribution. Some farmers, especially women, end up in hopelessness, despondency, and lack of morale to invest in agriculture.

That is why Elizabeth is seeking a loan to purchase farming inputs such as fertilizers and hybrid seeds to boost the quality of her produce, earn more profits, and elevate her living standard. Through this loan, she will be assured of a bumper harvest, which will mean more profits and income. Using this loan, she will be able to expand her enterprise.

Elizabeth hopes you will consider her appeal for the loan. It would mean a lot to her and her family.
