A loan helped to buy farm inputs such as seeds and quality fertilizers to improve her crop farming as a single mom.

Betty's story

Betty is a 20-year-old, single mom. She is a very hardworking mother who has lovely children whom she loves. Through her determination and hard work, she has managed to give her family a decent life, being the only breadwinner.

Betty works very hard because she wants to take her family's living standards to a different level. On her farm, she practices dairy and crop farming. Through farming, she has made her life meaningful and achieves maximum benefits.

In Kenya, agriculture is one of the most competitive industries, especially because of the high cost of operations necessary to improve. Such costs include land acquisition and inputs, the costs of which have skyrocketed. To meet the high costs of inputs, farmers have been forced to borrow from financial institutions, which sometimes impose very complicated procedures for loan distribution.

Betty is requesting a loan to purchase farming inputs such as hybrid seeds to boost the quality of her farming, earn more profits, and improve her standard of living. Through this loan, Betty will be assured of a bumper harvest, which will mean more profits and income.

Using this loan, she will be able to expand her crop enterprise.

Betty hopes you will consider her request for the loan. It would mean a lot to her and her family.
