Edinah's story

Edinah is a 36-year-old single mother of three school-going children and a woman who has a history of valor and perseverance. She is a resourceful woman who moves from pillar to post because she does not want her children to suffer. Edinah lives in Eldoret, a town that was significantly struck by the 2007–2008 crisis when violence erupted in Kenya.

She has farmed for the past fifteen years, enabling her to meet the enormous demands of caring for her family. Through farming, Edinah has made significant progress in being able to support her family. She is requesting this loan to buy farming inputs, such as high-quality seeds and nutrient-rich fertilizers, which she will use to improve her production and earn more income for her family. Support her at this time, when the Covid-19 pandemic has affected food systems, food security, and agricultural livelihoods.
