Betty's story

Betty is a mother of four children living in Nyamira, a town surrounded by prime agricultural lands which favor large-scale grain farming, dairy and horticultural farming. Two of her children are currently in school. Though she has faced many ups and downs in her life, she does not easily give up. Betty started farming and has been doing farming for the past few years now. Throughout those years, she has gathered a lot of experience, and all the farming techniques are at her fingertips. Betty lives with her children as a happy family, with Betty being the sole breadwinner.

Her main sources of income are crops, produce, and milk. Though her farm has been providing her with a daily living, she now faces the challenge of frequent attacks by common pests and harmful weeds. They damage the quality of her farm's produce, therefore reducing her products' market value. Betty is obtaining this loan to buy farm inputs, such as high-quality seeds and fertilizers, which will help a hardworking mom improve farm productivity and make profits to buy more farmland. With these inputs, Betty will surely be able to improve the quality of her farm produce, and thus be able to increase her profits. Increased profits will allow her to improve her life and keep her family happy. Kindly help this industrious woman.
