A loan helped to buy farm inputs, such as seeds and fertilizer to improve her production and make more income for her family.


Sheila's story

Women make a very major contribution in a country’s development and this explains why the world is preparing to celebrate International Women’s Day. Sheila, who is 30 years old, lives with her family in Sotik, a town where the main economic activities include agricultural processing, particularly in horticulture and tea.

Sheila is seeking a loan to buy farm inputs, such as seeds and fertilizer. This loan will enable her to improve her production through the use of quality farm inputs. As a result, she will help meet the increasing demand for food in the marketplace, generate more income to repay the loan, and improve her family's quality of life. She also hopes to improve the condition of her house. Support her at this time when the Covid-19 pandemic has affected food systems, food security, and agricultural livelihoods.


This loan is special because:

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