Mary's story

Every day Mary (45 years old mom of 5) tries to get ahead, alongside her family, with her farming business. Mary is a woman eager to get ahead. She lives with her husband and children in the Kitale area of Kenya. Mary was unable to study to have a professional career because of the economic situation that her family faced. However, she never gave up and she has been a farmer for the past few years. Mary has always had an affinity for farming and it runs in her blood. Due to how much she likes farming, she even nicknamed one of her cows. She is a very proud farmer, especially when she is milking her dairy cows. Mary cultivates crops, but she has not been making good profits because of poor inputs. Mary is requesting a loan to purchase high-quality seeds and good fertilizer that she will use to improve her crop production. Modern farming requires the use of modern techniques and good inputs. Using high-quality seeds will ensure her a bumper harvest and increased profits. Mary is very visionary, and her goal for the season is to boost her crop production build a modern house that has clean water and is connected to electricity. Mary believes that, with her loan, she will turn her family's life around and be able to give her children a solid education. Help Mary out with a loan and make her life a better one!
