Martha's story

Martha is a single mother of 3 school-going children who is very determined to succeed. Martha lives with her family in Nyahururu, a town surrounded by prime agricultural lands, which favor large-scale crop farming. Thanks to her daily efforts, she has managed to give her family a good start by providing them with a good quality of life. Her family members are very supportive in marketing their produce.

Despite the challenges she faces as a woman, Martha has always remained focused on her goals. Though she dearly loves crop farming, her farm is at risk of attack by crop pests and diseases. To a poor rural farmer, the cost of treatment for crop diseases increases the total operational costs to the extent that, in most cases, the amount of capital invested to produce a desired yield surpasses the output harvested. The remedy is to use certified seeds that are resistant to pests and diseases.

Martha is seeking a loan to buy farm inputs such as seeds and fertilizer. Your loan will enable her to improve her crop production through the use of quality farm inputs. Through this investment, she will be able to improve the quality of her farm produce and attract more buyers, leading to more profits. Kindly lend to her during this hard times of 2020!
