Alice's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped to buy certified high-nutrient fertilizers to expand her tea crop farm.
Alice (49), a mother of lovely children, is a renowned crop and dairy cow farmer who lives in a remote village in Nyamira. The quality of her crops has been widely acknowledged. She also keeps dairy cows for the production of milk to increase her profit. She has been in this business for the last few years and has made great strides in her life. Alice is seeking a loan of 100,000 KES, which she will use to buy certified high-nutrient fertilizers to expand her tea crop farm. By scaling up her business, she will relatively reduce production costs and increase output. Her strategy is to use the returns from the investment to pay for more farm inputs, the lack of which is a major problem that leads to the closing down of many farms due to poor quantity and quality of yields. She will therefore be able to increase her profit. This will elevate her standard of living as well as that of her beautiful children.
