Marcella's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to buy cereals (beans and maize) to sell in her village market.

Marcella's story

Practicing agriculture requires one to have a great passion, an ability to solve problems, and a tolerance for risk. Marcella (29 years old) is a farmer who lives and farms in Bomet, in the Rift valley province of Kenya. Amidst women of her age, Marcella has been identified as a very hard-working farmer. She is engaged in dairy and mixed farming. She is married to a hard-working and enterprising man.

She is elegant and admirable in spirit and effort. Marcella is a role model, a mentor, and an inspiration to many young farmers in her village. This is because of her resilience despite personal challenges, and her passion for supporting her family as the primary caregiver. She has been able to provide nutritious food for her family.

Marcella is now requesting a loan. She will use it to buy cereals to sell at the market in her village. Her remote village has a ready market for cereals, but the main challenge is a lack of supply. With this loan, she will be able to sell cereals and meet the local demand. Marcella awaits your kindness. Be inspired to lend to her today.
