Ben's story

Ben is a 69-year-old father of eight children living in Kenyenya. This town has vast agricultural potential, with numerous small farms and agricultural enterprises.

In Kenya, agriculture is one of the most competitive industries, especially due to the high costs of operations necessary to improve farming. Such costs include the cost of land acquisition and inputs, which have continually increased. To meet the high costs of inputs, farmers have been forced to borrow from financial institutions. Sometimes these institutions impose very complicated procedures in loan distribution. Some farmers end up hopeless and despondent, and lack the morale to invest in agriculture.

In a bid to expand his farm, Ben is seeking a loan of 100,000 KES to purchase farm inputs such as hybrid seeds and nutrient-rich fertilizers. Expanding his farm will diversify his production, and thus he will be able to grow many varieties of crops. Increased output in his farm will lead to greater profits, and Ben will be able to meet his family's basic needs.

Your loan will surely have a major impact in his life, especially in this tough economic season brought by the COVID-19 pandemic. Kindly support Ben with a loan today.
