Jane's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to buy farming supplies, such as high-quality fertilizer, to improve the crop farm's output for a mum with a beautiful smile and to make profits.

Jane's story

Get to know the ever-smiling Jane, a humble woman from a small village. Her two joys are her family and her farming business. She distributes milk and different crops to her neighbors, enabling them to feed their children with nutritious food. Jane also grows crops that she sells to her neighbors and in the local market. Her motive is to earn a profit, which she saves and uses toward her children. Jane gets satisfaction from working independently and from the profits she earns.

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

Jane is requesting a loan to purchase quality farm inputs to improve her crop farm. She will use the money from your loan to buy important inputs, such as high-quality nutrient-rich fertilizers.

Jane is optimistic that her next harvest will be better than last season's. Her income from her dairy business will be used to make initial loan repayments until the crops are harvested and sold.
