A loan of $250 helped to buy a water tank.


Phane's story

Hello! Introducing Phane, a 25-year-old mother who is full of energy and a very hard worker. She hails from the Nyamira area of Kenya, an area with good and favourable weather patterns that support farming. She is the mother of two children who are under her care from her marriage. Phane completed her secondary school education thanks to the financial support and effort of her parents, but never advanced. This never killed the spirit she has for succeeding in life.

Phane has been farming for the past six years and through mixed farming, she has been able to take care of her family. She loves dairy farming and has even nicknamed one of her cows 'Moraa' (from a person's name). Although Phane passionately loves farming, she faces the challenge of water shortages. Most of the rain water goes to waste, which is why she is seeking a loan to buy a water tank.

Phane comes from an area where there is no piped water. Therefore this water tank will assist her to harvest water during the rainy seasons and also store water for home consumption. Harvested water will assist Phane to irrigate her farm, ensuring that there is a constant production of crops. This loan will turn around the life of Phane as she will no longer have to walk for long distances in search of water, hence saving her time.
