Susan's story

Susan (pictured carrying her last born son) is a 36-year-old mother living in Kerugoya, a remote area located on a gentle plain before the ascent into the central highlands of Kenya. She is a horticultural farmer who has farmed for the past seven years, enabling her to comfortably support her family. Susan practices crop farming and dairy cow farming on her farm. With her profits, she has managed to take care of her family's needs and give her children a good education, because she believes that education is the only key to success.

Susan is seeking a loan of 20,000 Kenyan shillings (KES) to buy seeds and begin horticultural farming on her farm. She wants to take advantage of and reap more profits from the favorable weather patterns, her village's good road network, good soil, and a ready market for horticultural products. Her dreams and projections are that by the end of the first year, she will not only be selling in the local market, but also in international markets through fruit and vegetable exports.

Through this, she will be able to ensure that her children have a secure future and uninterrupted learning, because she will be able to pay tuition fees on time. She also wants to have a positive impact to society and will do so by employing people to work on her horticultural farm. Support Susan with a loan today to light up her flames of hope for a better future.
