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

A loan helped to purchase farm inputs and also buy vegetables from farmers for sale.

Sarah's story

Sarah is 51 years old. She is married and together with her husband blessed with children who are of age, only one is under the age of eighteen. She is a farmer and specializes in vegetables, which she supplies to restaurants and schools, too. She has been in this business for the past twenty years earning a monthly income of KES 50,000.

This is her 6th loan cycle with VisionFund Kenya and she has paid her previous loans successfully. She plans to use the loan to add farm inputs and also buy more vegetables for sale since she is a vegetable vendor.

She will use the anticipated profits to improve the standard of living of her family and support in educating their son who is still in high school.

Her future hopes and dreams are to do large scale farming and supply groceries to a big coverage of restaurants.
