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

A loan helped to buy more feed for her livestock, seedlings, such as napier grass, and other farm inputs to boost her business.

Joyce's story

Joyce, 56, is a humble widow, who is blessed with two children who are 21 and 25 years old. She diligently provides for her family.

Joyce is a passionate farmer, who grows various crops, as well as keeping livestock. She enjoys learning more about different ways of taking care of different plants and of raising different animals.

Through her farm, Joyce has created employment for one person, who helps her with planting and herding her animals. She always maintains to pay him on time and, thus, he is able to provide for his family while working for her.

Some of the challenges that Joyce faces is lack of enough feed for her animals, which is why she is borrowing to buy more hay and nappier grass. She plans on using her profits to pay back her loan and, also, to continue supporting her family.

Joyce's dream is to have a nappier grass plantation, seeing as she has a good supply of water on the farm.
