A loan of $275 helps to buy farming inputs.


Elizabeth's story

Elizabeth is 67 years old and a single mother. She has gone through a series of life failures, but she never loses her hope for success. She lives in Nyeri, a place with a beautiful climate and views of the Great Mount Kenya and other staggering hills in the region.

Like any other woman in her remote village, Elizabeth wants to give her family a solid upbringing. In Kenya, agriculture is one of the most competitive industries, especially due to the high costs of operations necessary to improve farming. Such costs include the cost of land acquisition and inputs, which have always skyrocketed.

Elizabeth requested a loan to buy farming inputs, which she plans to use to optimize her production and increase her income for her family.


This loan is special because:

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