Mary's story

Hello, lenders! Meet Mary, a 54-year-old mom of 2 school-going children and a farmer from a remote village in the Engineer area of Kenya. She started farming a few years ago on a small plot of land she acquired. She has dairy cows and a small garden on her farm.

Mary is seeking a loan of 60,000 Kenyan shillings, which she will use to pay for farm inputs and hired labor to grow more crops. It takes a lot for a smallholder farmer to risk limited resources to expand a farm business. With your help, Mary will be able to pay the high cost of farm inputs necessary for expansion.

A significant portion of her profit will be reinvested in the business to fuel growth, as Mary sets a good foundation for her family. She hopes to be able to progress as a female smallholder farmer and have a more stable income.
