A loan of $275 helps to buy different varieties of cereals, including maize and beans.


Naomi's story

Naomi, 23, is a smallholder farmer from a remote village in Bomet, Kenya. Her major source of income is selling what her farm produces, such as maize and milk. With the profits she has earned from her farming enterprise, Naomi has been able to provide for her family.

Although Naomi has been making profits from farming, she has also identified a market for selling cereals. The only big challenge she faces in this endeavor is a lack of funds. She is requesting a loan to buy cereals, including maize and beans, to sell in the local market. The market for cereals is never a problem, because the demand is always high, and Naomi plans to take advantage of that. Her marketing skills will enable her to attract more customers.

This is not just a loan to Naomi. It is an opportunity to give a mom a way to elevate her standard 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.
