Gladys's story

Gladys is a 59-year-old. She resides in a remote village in Thika, in the central region of Kenya. She is a smallhold farmer full of dreams and aspirations for her life.

As the major breadwinner of her family, she has been practicing mixed farming for the past few years. Gladys has immense knowledge of farming, and she commands a lot of respect from other farmers in her village.

Gladys’s primary source of income has been crops. She also engages in a small business to supplement the meager income she earns through farming. Although she has been making profits from farming, she has identified a market segment for selling cereals. The only big challenge she faces is the lack of funds. She is requesting a loan to buy cereal grains. She intends to buy different varieties of cereals, such as beans and corn, to sell in the local market.

The market for cereals is never a problem because the demand is always high, and she plans to take advantage of this. Since she has a good relationship with her neighbors, she plans to increase her marketshare by using word-of-mouth to reach more customers and markets.

You can help this woman achieve her dreams with this loan, which will surely bring her big profits.
