A loan of $500 helps to buy cereals to resell and, as a divorced mother who dreams of success, make more profit to support her family.

Beredina's story

Beredina is a divorced mother of four living in Nkubu, a remote area located on a gentle plain before the ascent into the central highlands of Kenya. She is a mixed farmer with ten years' experience. With her profit from farming, Beredina is able to give her family a solid reputation.

Although Beredina has been earning a profit from farming, she has identified a market segment for selling cereals. The market for cereals is never a problem because demand is always high. She plans to take advantage of this. Because of the good relationship she has with her neighbours, Beredina plans to expand her business by using word-of-mouth to reach more customers and markets.

The biggest challenge she faces in achieving this goal is a lack of funds. Beredina is requesting a loan to buy different varieties of cereals, such as maize, sorghum, rice, wheat, barley, and millet, to sell in the local market. You can help this woman achieve her dreams with this loan, which will surely bring big profits.

This loan is special because:

It finances smallholder farmers to purchase dairy cows, chickens, cereals, farm inputs and farming equipment.
