Robina's story

Robina is a single mom who works hard and is very determined to change her life. She is a farmer living in Litein with her children. There are several benefits that Robina has gained from farming over the last few years. She has earned profits, independence, and job security. She has used part of her savings to send her children to school.


Robina is seeking a loan of 35,000 KES, which she will use to buy certified seeds and high-nutrient fertilizer to expand her crop farm. By expanding her business, she will reduce production costs and increase output. Robina's strategy is to use returns from the investment to pay for more farm inputs, as the lack of inputs is a major problem that leads to the closing of many farms due to poor quantity and quality of yields. Returns from the investment will change her life. Robina will use the additional income to raise her family's living standards and pay for her children's education. Her positive attitude and her hopes of getting ahead show that Robina has an immense desire to better herself and, of course, to receive a favorable response to her loan request. Support her at this time when the Covid-19 pandemic has affected food systems, food security, and agricultural livelihoods.
