Veronica's story

Meet Veronica, a 54-year-old farmer whose life offers inspiring life lessons. She is a strong-minded woman who lives on her farm in a remote village near Nyahururu town in Kenya. She is a progressive woman who likes trying new things. Not many women find it easy to live in Nyahururu, but as an ambitious woman, she has made great progress. Veronica is a crop farmer and also rears animals.

Modern agriculture has become more aware of the need to increase the quality of seeds and fertilizer used to farm. On this note, there is a need to use improved farming supplies for effective production. Veronica requested a loan, which she will use to buy farming supplies, such as hybrid seeds and fertilizer. The returns from the investment will change her life and that of her entire household, as she will use the additional income to raise their living standards.

Veronica has a great desire to succeed and better her life. She is thankful for this opportunity and your support.
