A loan of $275 helps to buy a variety of cereals, including corn and beans, to sell at the local market.


Esther's story

Esther is a 31-year-old mother of three school-going children living in Kenyenya, a town in Kenya that hosts a number of elite athletes. Her main source of income is selling produce from her farm.

Although Esther has been making profits from farming, she has identified a market for selling cereals. The only challenge she faces in this endeavor is a lack of funds. Esther is requesting a loan to buy a variety of cereals, including maize and beans, to sell at the local market.

The market for cereals is never a problem, because the demand is always high, and Esther plans to take advantage of that. Her marketing skills will enable her to be able to attract many customers. This is not just a loan to Esther. It is an opportunity to give a mom a way to elevate her standards of living and eventually take her out of poverty.


This loan is special because:

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