A loan helped to pay for farm inputs and hired labor to grow her crop farm and improve her living conditions.

Ruth's story

Hello lenders! Meet Ruth (pictured in her simple house), a 32-year-old mom of 5 and a farmer from a remote village in the Kapcherop area of Kenya. She started farming a few years ago on a small plot of land she acquired. She has dairy cows and a small garden on her farm.

Ruth is seeking a loan of 100,000 KES, which she will use to pay for farm inputs and hired labor to grow more crops. It takes a lot for a smallholder farmer to risk limited resources to expand a farm business. With your help, Ruth will be able to pay the high cost of farm inputs necessary for expansion.

A significant portion of her profits will be reinvested in the business to fuel growth, as Ruth sets a good foundation for her family. She hopes to be able to progress as a female smallholder farmer and have a more stable income.
