Daisy's story

Get to know Daisy (41 years). Her success comes as a result of her hard work and determination. Today she points out some of the successes she has made through farming, like sending her children to school.

Daisy is married and lives with her husband in a remote village in the Bomet area of Kenya. She is committed and devoted to working under the umbrella of farming. She practices crop and dairy farming.

Though she dearly loves crop farming, her farm is at risk of attack by crop pests and diseases. Treating crop diseases requires a substantial increase in operating costs. In most cases involving poor rural farmers, the amount of capital invested to produce a desired yield is greater than the value of the harvest. The remedy is to use certified seeds that are resistant to pests and diseases.

Daisy is seeking a loan of 100,000 KES (Kenya shillings) which she will use to buy certified seeds and high-nutrient fertilizers to expand her crop farm. By scaling up the business, she will reduce production costs and increase output.

Her strategy is to use the returns from the investment to pay for more farm inputs, the lack of which is a major problem that leads to the closing down of many farms due to poor quantity and quality of yields. Through the loan, Daisy will attain food security in her household and also improve her living conditions. Lend today to keep her moving forward!
