A loan helped to buy farm inputs which she plans to use to improve her production.

Mercy's story

Mercy (22) is a woman who has gone through a number of setbacks, but she always keeps her head high. She is a mixed farmer who has always liked farming and keeps animals on her farm. She is a very proud farmer, especially when she is milking her cows.

Mercy practices crop farming, but she has not been making good profits because of poor farming inputs. That is why she seeks a loan to buy farm inputs. Through the loan, she will be able to purchase high-quality seeds, good fertilizer, and pesticides that she will use to greatly improve her crop production. Modern farming requires the use of modern techniques, and high-quality seeds will ensure a bumper harvest and increased profits.

Mercy is very forward-looking, and her goal for the season is to boost her crop production compared to the previous year. All of this can be achieved through lenders’ help and goodwill. Supporting her with a loan will be key in facing the financial crisis brought on about by the Covid-19 pandemic.
