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

A loan helped to buy more cereals, such as corn and beans, to resell and make profits while satisfying the demand. She will use the profit to support her family, who are poor.

Mary's story

Mary’s story is of a woman who struggled to be successful. She is a mother of three children living in Vihiga, a town surrounded by prime agricultural lands which favour large-scale farming. She obtains her income through mixed dairy and crop farming. She also sells cereals to supplement her farming income.

That is why she is seeking this loan to buy more cereals. Kenya's Vihiga area, one of the country's populated regions, has a high demand for cereals. This means that Mary could increase her profits by satisfying the demand.

Mary is confident that this loan will be of much help and that she will be able to satisfy the market's demand for cereals. Mary believes that the extra income she earns will enable a change in her life and increase her cereal business.

Mary and her whole family are very grateful for your understanding, and the impact of the loan you will lend to her. She wants to give her family a solid reputation. Mary has thanked Kiva lenders for their warm consideration.
