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

A loan helped to buy farm inputs, such as high-quality organic fertilizers, to improve productivity on her tea farm.

Cicilia's story

Cicilia, a 31-year-old repeat borrower and mother of 2 school-going children, wears a beautiful smile. When she began farming, Cicilia had a clear mindset of what she wanted to achieve - to turn around her life and to give her family a better standard of living. She promised herself that she would sacrifice her time and energy for her family’s sake.

After earning a profit from her first harvest, Cicilia felt encouraged and elevated to invest more in agribusiness. Today, she is an established dairy and tea farmer living in Nyamira, a land of seemingly never-ending beauty. She values education, and this explains why she has promised to educate all her children until they pursue degree courses. Her major challenge in achieving her dream is reduced crop productivity.

In the modern world, agriculture has become exceedingly dynamic, and there is a need to use improved farming inputs for effective production. Cicilia is seeking a 90,000 KES loan to buy farm inputs, such as high-quality fertilizers, to improve productivity on her tea farm. With this loan, she will be on her way to a bumper tea harvest, which will translate into more profits and cash.

Kindly lend to make Cicilia's last half of 2020 great!
