Lydia's story

Meet Lydia, a 46-year-old mom of 3 children, who is a very hard worker and a go-getter. She hails from a remote village in the Nyeri area of Kenya. This area has tough living conditions and to survive one must have a tough skin. But Lydia has defied all the odds and has engaged in farming for the past few years. Her primary sources of income are crops and other dairy animal farming.

Lydia is seeking a loan of 30,000 KES, which she will use to purchase farm inputs such as hybrid seeds and fertilizer and pay for hired labor to grow more crops on her farm. It takes a lot for a smallholder farmer to risk limited resources to expand a farm business. With your help, Lydia will be able to manage the high cost of farm inputs necessary for expansion. A significant portion of the profit will be put back into the business to fuel growth as she sets a good foundation for her family and assures her children a good future.

Lydia is thankful in advance for your attention and help. Support this happy mother and lend now.
