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

A loan helped a single mom to buy certified fertilizer and expand her corn farm to meet the high demand for produce in her village.

Martha's story

Martha, a 57-year-old single mom, is the mother of a lovely child. She is a woman with a big heart, and her tenderness and her love for farming exceed all limits.

She is a wise farmer who is respected by her neighbors and fellow farmers as a mentor. She farms a small plot of land in the green, lush hills of Eldoret, which is in the Rift valley region of Kenya. For the past many years, she has been involved in mixed farming, and she grows maize.

Through these activities, Martha has been able to earn a decent and honest income.

Although Martha has been making profits through farming, not everything has been easy for this humble and industrious mother. Her farm has not been producing as much of her banana harvest lately, due to a lack of fertilizer and the presence of pests and disease. That is why she is seeking a loan to buy quality fertilizer and expand her corn farm to meet the high demand for corn in her village.

Martha hopes you will consider her appeal for the loan; it would mean a lot to her and her family.
