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

A loan helped to buy farm inputs such as seeds and quality fertilizer to improve a single mom's crop farming.

Rose's story

Rose is a humble single mother of two school-going children living in Eldoret, a town that was significantly stuck by the 2007–2008 crisis when violence occurred in Kenya. She is an active woman who works in agricultural activities with skills that she inherited from her parents.

In addition to engaging in some small business activities, she has been a very hardworking mixed farmer for the past few years, growing maize and keeping dairy cows. Through these activities, she has been able to earn a decent and honest income.

Although she has been making profits through farming, not everything has been easy for this humble and industrious mother. Her farm has not been producing as much of a harvest lately due to a lack of fertilizer and good seeds. That is why she is seeking a loan to buy farm inputs such as hybrid seeds and fertilizer to boost her yields, thus attracting more sales revenue to cater for her family expenses.

Through this loan, Rose will be assured of a bumper harvest that will mean more profits and income. Using this loan, she will be able to expand her enterprise.

She hopes you will consider her appeal for the loan; it would mean a lot to her in achieving her resolutions during the last phase of 2020.
