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

A loan helped to buy farm inputs such as seeds to improve her crop farm and make more income for her family.

Peninah's story

This is Peninah, a 45-year-old mother of three children, who is the picture of beauty and has an infectious smile. Out of economic necessity, she started farming three years ago. Peninah is from the Bomet area of Kenya, an area endowed with natural streams and green vegetation. Over the years, she has gathered much experience and is considered among the best farmers in her village.

Her primary sources of income have been milk and crops. That is why she is seeking this loan, to buy farm inputs such as seeds to improve her crop farm. Kenya's Bomet area, one of the country's most populated regions, has a high demand for food. By adding more food crops to her farming activities, Peninah could increase her profits and satisfy the demand. Peninah believes that this loan will be very helpful and that she will be able to satisfy the demand for food. She also believes that the extra income she earns will enable a change in her life and increase her business. Increased profits will allow Peninah to repay this loan.

Be inspired this first quarter of 2021, and lend to keep her beautiful smile!
