Stella's story

Stella is a mrembo (beautiful woman), who is humble and honest. She is a very hardworking small-holder farmer, who does not allow opportunities to pass her by.

Stella never had the opportunity to advance her education, but this did not kill her dream of wanting to succeed in life. She started farming a few years ago, during which time she has gained much experience and now has all the farming techniques at her fingertips. Stella practices horticulture and mixed farming, the profits of which have enabled her to take care of her family's needs and give her children a good education. She believes that education is the only key to success.

Stella requested a loan for 50,000 KES, which she will use to buy seeds and improve her crop farming. Because of favorable weather patterns, a good road network in her village, good soil and a ready market for crop products, Stella wants to take advantage of those attributes and reap more profits. She hopes that through the loan, she will improve her living conditions. She hopes that by the end of the first year she will be selling not only in the local market but also in international markets.
