Celestine's story

Celestine is 21 years old, married and has one child. She lives in Kapsowar, a town that was significantly affected by the 2007–2008 crisis of violence in Kenya. Celestine loves supporting her family.

The quality of Celestine’s crops has dwindled due to poor farm inputs. This issue has brought about low demand for her crops and has negatively impacted her sales. Celestine is seeking a helping hand to purchase farming inputs, such as certified seeds and nutrient-rich fertilizer, to boost the quality of her produce.

With the inputs, Celestine is assured of a bumper harvest that will open new markets for her crops and increase her profits. Increased profits will, in turn, elevate her family's standard of living. Support her at this time when the Covid-19 pandemic has affected food systems, food security, and agricultural livelihoods.
