Rosa's story

The above picture presents Rosa (36 years old mom of 2), who is hard-working and very ambitious. She is a farmer who works hard to fight the challenges that hinder her success. Rosa lives with her family in a remote village in Eldoret. She adores and cherishes her children, and she is determined to give them a healthy lifestyle, including paying for their education. Rosa has been practicing organic farming for the last few years. Due to continuous crop-growing, the nutrients in her soil have slowly been depleted. This, together with the attacks by weeds and pests, has lowered the quality of her farm produce. That is why Rosa is seeking a loan to buy farm inputs and hire labor to help in her farm work. Through the loan she will be able to cultivate more land because of the hired labor and also the farm inputs will improve her crop productivity. Through this loan, Rosa will be assured of a bumper harvest this season, which will mean more profits and income. Using this loan, she will be able to expand her enterprise. Rosa hopes you will consider her appeal for the loan; it would mean a lot to her family and her.
