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

A loan helped a single mom to buy quality farm inputs, such as certified seeds and fertilizer, to help improve her crop production and support this proactive mother.

Gladys's story

Gladys (a 38-year-old single mom) is practical and resourceful. Faced with unemployment, she started practicing mixed farming a few years ago. That is, she grows maize and keeps dairy, and through these activities she has been able to earn a decent and honest income. She has gained so much experience through those years of farming.

It is through her perseverance and courage that her children can have a respectable life.

Although Gladys has been making profits through farming, not everything has been easy for this humble and industrious mother. Her farm has not been producing an optimal harvest because of the lack of fertilizer and good seeds, and the presence of pests and diseases. That is why she is seeking a loan of KES 120,000 to be able to buy farm inputs such as fertilizers.

Through the loan, Gladys will be on her way to a bumper harvest, and this will translate into more profits and cash. Through the use of good seeds and fertilizer, Gladys will reap more, which will assure her of comfortably taking care of her family and repaying the loan. Gladys’ plan is to be able to increase her farming and to be able to save more money so that she can buy more land for farming.

Please support this smallholder farmer who today needs you to be able to get ahead and pursue her dreams.
