Gladys's story

Meet Gladys, a 35 year old and a mother of four children. She is from the Embu area of Kenya. Gladys is a very hard working farmer who has been practicing mixed farming for the past twenty years and doubles up as a small business operator. She grows maize, rears cows and has gained much experience over the years. Through these activities, Gladys has been able to earn a decent and honest income. She is requesting a loan to buy farm inputs, such as seeds and fertilizers. Although she has been earning profit from farming, it has not been easy for this humble and industrious mother. Her farm has not been producing much of a harvest because of lack of fertilizer and good seeds and the presence of pests and diseases. Gladys will use her loan to get a bumper harvest, which will translate into more income and profit. Through the use of good seeds and fertilizers, she will increase her profit margins. Support this mother by lending to her this New Year 2021.
