Mary's story

Get to know Mary, a 61-year-old mom! She is a mother and a rural smallholder farmer from the Siongiroi area of Kenya. Mary is involved in several agricultural activities such as growing different crops.

In Kenya, agriculture is one of the most competitive industries, especially because of the high cost of operations necessary to improve farming. Such costs include land acquisition and inputs, which continue to rise.

To meet the high cost of inputs, farmers have been forced to borrow from financial institutions, which sometimes impose very complicated procedures in loan distribution. Some farmers, especially women, end up being disadvantaged.

Mary is seeking a loan to buy farm inputs such as nutrient-rich fertilizer and certified seeds to improve her output and generate more income for her family. She also hopes to improve the condition of her house. Please help this mother to accomplish all her dreams. Mary counts on your help and hopes for your attention.
