Naomy's story

Naomy is a 31-year-old mother of one, living in Bomet, Kenya, a town that hosts a number of elite Kenyan athletes. This area has tough living conditions and to survive you must have tough skin. Naomy has defied all the odds and has chosen to work hard so that she can meet the needs of her loving family. She is their major breadwinner.

Naomy works on her farm growing corn and vegetables and rearing dairy cows. She is a committed and devoted farmer who depends entirely on farming. Naomy has used part of her savings in agriculture to support her family. Naomy is seeking a loan of 70,000 KES, which she will use to buy certified seeds and high-nutrient fertilizers to expand her crop farm. By scaling up her business, Naomy will reduce production costs and increase output. Naomy's strategy is to use the returns from the investment to pay for more farm inputs. The lack of such inputs is a major problem that leads to the closing of many farms, due to poor yield quantity and quality. With the improved inputs, Naomy will be able to increase her profits. This will elevate her standard of living as well as that of her beautiful family.
