Jane's story

Jane, 55 years old, has always utilized the little she has to the greatest benefit. Today, she is able to meet the demands of her family, which makes her a respected woman in her village in the Kapsowar region of Kenya. With very few resources, she has pulled through.

She is involved in dairy and maize farming. She also has a side sales business. Her work enables her to bring home important income. She gets help with the work from her family members.

She is seeking a 140,000 KES loan, which she will use to pay for farm inputs and to hire laborers to grow more crops on the farm. It takes a lot for a small farmer to risk limited available resources to expand their farm business.

With your help, she will be able to pay for the high cost of farm inputs necessary for expansion. A significant portion of the profits will be invested back into the business to fuel growth.

Jane wants to set a good example and foundation for her children. She really hopes for your help and contribution, and she thanks you in advance.
