Cicily's story

Cicily (52) is a single mom living in Nyeri, a town surrounded by prime agricultural lands that favor large-scale grain, dairy, and crop farming. She is a humble woman who has always been firm despite life’s hurdles that she faces. Cicily is one of the most experienced female farmers in her home village, with many years of farming experience.

She is seeking this loan to buy farming inputs that she plans to use to improve her production and make more income to support her family.

The Covid-19 pandemic has posed a significant threat to the economy of Kenya, causing a lot of uncertainties and disrupting food supply chains.
