Ebby's story

Ebby (53) is a mom of 2 school-going children from a remote village in Vihiga, Kenya. She has defied the common thinking among Kenyans that agriculture is for the older generation.

Ebby is blessed with lovely children. Her major source of income is selling what her farm produces and also she has a personal business. With the profit she has earned from her farming enterprise, Ebby has been able to provide for her children.

Although Ebby has been making profits from farming, she has also identified a market for selling cereals. The only big challenge she faces in this endeavour is a lack of funds. She is requesting a loan to buy cereals. She intends to buy different varieties of cereals, including maize and beans, to sell in the local market. The market for cereals is never a problem, because the demand is always high, and Ebby plans to take advantage of that. Her marketing skills will enable her to attract more customers.

This is not just a loan to Ebby, it is an opportunity to give a mom a way to elevate her standard of living and eventually take her out of poverty.
