Milcent from Kenya

$200 to purchase cereal varieties to increase her income and meet her family's basic needs.

Milcent is based in Kisumu, a remote area of Kenya with fertile soil famous for dairy and cereal farming. As a single mom who is poor, Milcent has always dreamed of getting out of poverty. For that reason she began practicing farming after her job search proved futile. She is a very hardworking and energetic farmer, having learned good farming practices over the past 15 years. Very determined and dedicated, she has never regretted going into farming.

Milcent's primary sources of income have been through crops, dairy farming and milk sales. She has been able to earn a decent income and with her profits she has been able to take care of her family and provide for the basic needs of her parents.

Milcent is seeking a loan to buy cereals such as maize, beans and lentils to sell, which will allow her to increase her income to solely support her family. Kindly lend to Milcent!
