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

A loan helped to stock her cereal business, enabling her to increase sales and therefore earn more profits to meet the educational requirements of her children.

Lucy's story

Lucy is a 34-year old mother of seven children living in Vihiga, Kenya, with her family. She is a dairy farmer who also practices cereal trading. Lucy is seeking a loan to stock her cereals business. She plans to use the money to purchase and transport cereals in bulk to faraway markets, where she will sell at prices high enough to cover all the expenses incurred plus a profit. She is confident that she will be able to repay the loan on time, because she is hardworking and financially disciplined.

Returns from the investment will change her life, as she will use the additional income to raise her family's living standards and pay for her children's education. Her positive attitude and her hopes of getting ahead show that Lucy has an immense desire to better herself, and, of course, a desire to receive a favorable response to her loan request. Lucy really hopes for your help and understanding. She expresses her thankfulness in this tough time of the COVID-19 pandemic.
