Sarah's story

Hello, Kiva community! Meet Sarah, a 33-year-old single mom of 2 school-going children. She is a resourceful farmer from Eldoret, in the Rift valley region of Kenya, where she lives with her family.

Sarah started dairy and crop farming a few years ago with the aim of providing for the basic needs of her family. She has made tremendous strides in the field of agribusiness with her great passion and enthusiasm.

Being the major breadwinner in her household, this woman works hard to ensure that she achieves her goals and objectives. Her major sources of income include selling her farm produce, such as milk and different crops.

Although Sarah has been earning some income from her farm, everything has not been easy for this enterprising woman. Her farm produce has been reduced due to a lack of fertilizer and good seeds and the presence of pests and diseases.

This is why Sarah is seeking a loan to buy farm inputs, such as fertilizers, pesticides, and herbicides, to expand her crop farm. Through this loan, she will be assured of a bumper harvest, which will mean more profits and income. Using this loan, she will be able to expand her enterprise.

Sarah hopes you will consider her request for this loan. It will change her life and improve the welfare of her family.
