A loan helped to buy corn and beans to resell.

Doricas's story

Doricas, a 33 years old mom of 3 school going children, lives in Busia, a favorable area for farming. In this region, there is a high rate of poverty and unemployment, especially for women. Despite these challenges, Doricas always works hard to ensure that she is able to lift herself out of the situation and give her family a healthy living. Her background was challenging, being brought up in a family that had been hit by poverty. However, she has always wanted to change the life of her family.

Her primary sources of income has been milk and crops. Although she has been making profits from farming, she has identified a “niche market” for selling cereals. The only big challenge she faces is the lack of funds.

Doricas is requesting a loan to buy cereals. She intends to buy different varieties of cereals such as maize, beans, and cowpeas to sell in the local market. The market for cereals is never a problem because the demand is always high, and she plans to take advantage of that. Because of the good relationship she has with her neighbours, she plans to increase her market by using word-of-mouth to reach more customers and markets. You can help this woman achieve her dreams with this loan, which will surely bring big profits.

Doricas is so grateful in advance.
