Rusi's story

The above picture presents Rusi and her handsome husband (in a jacket). Rusi is a 64-year-old farmer from Kamagut, a remote village in the Eldoret area of Kenya. She is elegant and admirable in spirit and effort. She is a role model, a mentor, and an inspiration to many young farmers in her village because of her resilience, despite personal challenges and her passion to support her three angel-like children as a primary caregiver. For the past six years, Rusi has been involved in mixed farming and her primary source of income has been growing maize, poultry, tomatoes, and also keeping dairy cows. Rusi has been able to provide nutritious food for her family. She is most passionate about horticulture farming. She takes pride in being a part of the fastest-growing agriculture industry category in Kenya. However, she is facing serious challenges brought about by harsh weather conditions. Rusi is seeking a loan to invest in the expansion of her horticulture farm. She sees a lot of room for improvement and growth. What is lacking is the capital to drive the positive change. With your loan, Rusi will make enough income to take care of her family and other farming expenses. She wakes up early and goes to sleep very late every day to give her family a decent living and afford her children proper education. An improved income level will assure her family of a secure future. Help this wonder-woman realize her dreams!
