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

A loan helped to buy farming inputs, such as hybrid seeds and fertilizer, to improve her farm's output and generate profits to educate her children.

Linah's story

Linah is a 35-year-old mother of three school-going children, living in Siongiroi, a town that hosts a number of elite athletes in Kenya. She is a mixed farmer who has been in this business for the last many years, enabling her to support her family. The biggest challenge for farmers, especially in Siongiroi, is the high cost of farming inputs. Most farmers are forced to use old-fashioned methods, and with time, the fertility of the soil is lost.

Linah is seeking this loan so that she can buy farming inputs, such as hybrid seeds and fertilizer. The returns on the investment will change her life and that of her entire household as she will use the additional income to raise their living standard and pay for her children's education. She has a great desire to succeed and she thanks her lenders for their generous support.

Linah wishes everyone victory in the fight against the Covid-19 pandemic.
