Gladys's story

Vihiga, Kenya, is a town that is famous for producing some of the world's most prominent long-distance runners. It also has a lot of small farmers who work the land and raise animals. Unfortunately, these farmers face many challenges, including the high cost of farm inputs.

Gladys (a 56-year-old single mom) has experienced these challenges but has always found a way to pull through. She is from a rural village on the outskirts of Vihiga. Gladys is elegant and admirable in spirit and effort. She is a role model, a mentor, and an inspiration to many young farmers in her village because of her resilience despite personal challenges. She is passionate about supporting her family as the primary caregiver.

For the past few years, Gladys has been involved in dairy, mixed farming, and cereals trading. Through her work, she has been able to provide nutritious food for her family.

Now, Gladys is requesting a loan to buy more cereals grains to sell at the market in her village. Her remote village has a ready market for cereals, but the main challenge is a lack of supply. With this loan, she will be able to sell more cereals to meet the local demand.

Gladys awaits your kindness. Be inspired to lend to her today. Through this loan, Gladys will attain food security in her household and also improve her living conditions.
