Christine's loan finished fundraising,

A loan helped to buy farm inputs such as certified seeds and nutrient-rich fertilizer to improve the quality of her produce.

Christine's story

Growing up in Africa comes with its own share of problems, but growing up in Kitale, Kenya, a developing country, is a real struggle. Christine, a 44-year-old mom of 2 school-going children, grew up in Kitale and still lives there with her family. She has advanced to become one of the most respected women in her village. She does dairy and crop farming.

Farming is the main economic activity in her village. In Kitale, smallholder farmers have dominated the region, undertaking various farming activities on their farms. Unfortunately, these farmers face many challenges, including the high cost of farm inputs. In the modern world, agriculture has become exceedingly dynamic, improving the kind of inputs that are being used in the sector today. There is a need to use improved farming inputs for effective production.

Christine has requested a loan which she will use to buy farm inputs, such as certified seeds and nutrient-rich fertilizer. The loan will enable her to improve her production through the use of these quality farm inputs. This intervention will help her fill the increasing demand for food in the market and, in the process, generate more income to repay the loan debt and elevate her family's quality of life.

Christine hopes for your altruistic support and is very thankful!
