A loan of $325 helps to buy certified seeds and nutrient-rich fertilizers to expand her farming; by scaling up her business, she will relatively reduce production costs and increase output.


Eunice's story

Eunice is the pillar of the economic elevation of her family. She has gained so many benefits from farming. She has made profits and earned independence and job security over the last nine years.

Eunice is married and lives with her husband in a remote village in the Kerugoya area of Kenya. She is a committed and devoted farmer who depends entirely on her farming business. She has used part of her savings from agriculture to send her lovely children to school.

Eunice is seeking a loan to buy certified seeds and nutrient-rich fertilizers to expand her farming. By scaling up her business, she will relatively reduce production costs and increase output.

Her strategy is to use the returns from the investment to pay for more farm inputs: lack of farm inputs has been a major problem that leads to the closing of many farms due to poor quantity and quality of yields. She should, therefore, be able to increase her profits and thus elevate her standard of living, by building a modern house and improving her beautiful children's standard of living.


This loan is special because:

It finances smallholder farmers to purchase dairy cows, chickens, cereals, farm inputs and farming equipment.
