Tabitha's story

The lack of capital has been a great worry in the life of Tabitha, a woman who is dedicated in body and soul to agriculture. For the past ten year, she has been actively involved in mixed farming. Tabitha says, “I have always had an affinity for farming, and it runs in my blood.” Because of how much she likes farming, she has even nicknamed one of her cows. She is a very proud farmer, especially when she is milking her cows. Through her dairy cows, she is able to get between 10-15 litres of milk a day, and this helps her support her family.

Tabitha also practices crop farming. She has not been making good profits because of poor farming implements. . This is why she is kindly seeking a loan to buy farm implements. Through this loan, she will be able to buy high-quality seeds, good fertilizer and pesticides that she will use to greatly improve her crop production. Modern farming requires the use of modern techniques, and therefore using high-quality seeds will assure her of a bumper harvest and increased profit levels. Her goal for the season is to boost her crop production and be able to get more crop output than the previous year. All this can be achieved through lenders’ help and goodwill.

Tabitha believes that through this loan, she will be able to turn around her family's life and be able to give her children a solid educational background. This loan will be Tabitha’s way out of poverty.
