Lucy is a 54 year-old widow with two children. She has operated her farming business for the past 20 years.
She is applying for a loan of 20,000 Kenyan shillings to purchase seeds to grow carrots and cabbages. She describes the climate in her area as favourable for farming and she anticipates boosting her production with her profits from the business.
This is Lucy's first loan with SMEP-Deposit Taking Microfinance Limited.
