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

A loan helped to buy a water tank, which will enable this single mother to harvest rain water for home use and to irrigate her crops.

Susan's story

Wonderful people of the globe, meet Susan!

Susan is a single mother of four children living in Nyahururu, a town surrounded by prime agricultural lands which favor large-scale grain farming, dairy and horticultural farming. She was raised in challenging circumstances and her basic needs were never met, so she vowed she would turn her life around and live a comfortable life. This is why she started mixed farming, and she has been farming for more than ten years. Through dedication, hard work and commitment, she has been able to provide for the basic needs of her family.

Although she makes some profit, she faces the challenge of inadequate water for irrigating her crops and even for home consumption. Most of the rain water is wasted and Susan wants to harvest that water. For this reason, she is kindly requesting a loan to buy a water tank. The Nyahururu area has no piped water, and this means one has to travel long distances in search of “this precious commodity”. With this loan, Susan will be able to store water for home consumption, and it will also help her to irrigate her crops. She awaits your kindness.
