Margaret's story

Meet Margaret, who is a 48-year-old widowed mom of 2 school-going children. Margaret is a charismatic and easygoing mother who is the voice of hope for her poor family. With the great joy that she possesses, Margaret goes to her mixed farm every day and enjoys ploughing her farm and watering her plants. Her wide experience means she has mastered activities from growing and harvesting to earning an income by selling her crops.

Margaret is seeking a loan to buy farming supplies such as certified seeds and nutrient-rich fertilizers. Your loan will enable her to use quality supplies to improve her farm's production. This boost will help her meet the increasing demand for food in the market, and it will also generate more income so she may repay her loan and improve her family's quality of life. She also hopes to improve her house's condition.
