A loan helped to buy farming inputs, such as seed and fertilizer, to make profits and support her family.


Callen's story

Living in Eldoret is a real struggle, but for a poor woman like Callen (29 years old and pictured in her side hustle shop business), it is even worse. With no one to share the day-to-day responsibilities of feeding her children and making important family decisions, she ventured into farming. She is unwilling to let her children suffer, and she injects bone-grinding labor in her business. After making her first profits in agriculture, she felt elevated and decided to make agriculture her main source of livelihood.

In Kenya, agriculture is one of the most competitive industries, especially due to the high cost of operations necessary to improve farming. Such costs include the cost of land acquisition and inputs, the costs of which have always skyrocketed. To meet the high costs of inputs, farmers have been forced to borrow from financial institutions that sometimes impose very complicated procedures in loan distribution.

Callen has decided to request a loan that she intends to use to buy farming inputs such as fertilizer and seeds. Your loan will enable her to improve her production through the use of quality farm inputs. She will generate more income to repay the loan and improve the quality of life of her family.

She counts on your help and hopes for your attention.
