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

A loan helped a single mom to buy farming inputs such as seeds and nutrient-rich fertilizers to expand her horticultural farm and make more profits for her family.

Christina's story

Christina is a 54 year old single mother of five children living in Eldoret, a town that was significantly stuck by the 2007–2008 Kenyan crisis when violence occurred in Kenya. She values education and this explains why she has sent all her five children to school.

Christina practices mixed dairy and crop farming, and through these ventures, she has been able to use her savings to send three of her four children to school. She is a committed and devoted farmer who depends entirely on farming.

A lack of farm inputs is a major problem that leads to the closing of many farms due to poor quantity and quality of yields. Christina is seeking a loan of 30,000 KES, which she will use to buy certified seeds and high-nutrient fertilizers to expand her horticulture farm. By scaling up her business, she will reduce relative production costs and increase output.

Christina's strategy is to use the returns from the investment to pay for more farm inputs and, therefore, be able to increase her profits. This will elevate her standard of living as well as that of her beautiful children. Keep her flames of hope burning this 2020 with a loan.
