A loan helped to buy a variety of cereals, including maize and beans, to sell at the local market.


Susana's story

Susana is a 61-year-old mother living in Bomet, a town in Kenya that hosts a number of elite athletes. Her main source of income is selling produce from her farm.

Although Susana has been making profits from farming, she has identified a market for selling cereals. The only challenge she faces in this endeavor is a lack of funds. Susana is requesting a loan to buy a variety of cereals, including maize and beans, to sell at the local market.

The market for cereals is never a problem, because the demand is always high, and Susana plans to take advantage of that. Her marketing skills will enable her to be able to attract many customers.

This is not just a loan to Susana. It is an opportunity to give a mom a way to elevate her standards of living and eventually take her out of poverty.
