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

A loan helped to support her to buy more maize for selling.

Nancy's story

Nancy is a humble single mother who is blessed with four children. She works extra hard trying to meet all their needs. Nancy is able to provide for her family through the cereals business which she runs and in which she is seeking a loan to enable her to expand the business. This will greatly benefit her business and she will use her profits to pay back the loan lenders and improve her family's living standards. Her main challenge has been lack of enough stock to sustain her demand as maize is a staple crop in Kenya. In a good season when demand is high, she is able to hire people to work in the business.

Her dream is to give her children a good education and hopefully open a second business in future after this business has continued to grow well.
