Naomi's story

Naomi is a 42-year-old mother of three children who is very hardworking and determined to succeed. She lives with her family in Kerugoya, a town with surroundings that have vast agricultural potential with numerous small farms and also large agricultural enterprises.
In her family, she is seen as an icon of success, because of her determination and self-sacrifice towards the affairs of her family. She is a creative and innovative woman who realized a market gap in her village, and wants to start a grocery shop supplying fruits and vegetables to the local residents.

Naomi requested a loan, which she will use to buy fruits and vegetables for the grocery business. She will use her market knowledge to fix a good market price for her products. The additional profits she will earn, will be saved for the education of her children as well as be used for loan repayment. Naomi will also help other farmers in her place of residence, as she will create a good market for their commodities. This will generate employment in her village.
