Alice from Eldoret, Kenya

I'm starting a farm to support my four kids. I have skills but need land and supplies

With just $250 I can lease land and supplies. I've learned business skills and I'm ready for the challenge, I just need help with this first step.



I am a widow with four kids. Since my husband died, I have struggled to support my children. I have had help from an organization called Beyond Fistula to get back on my feet.

My goals are to start a small farm to earn money to support my children. Beyond Fistula is also supporting me to start my small business.

I need $250 to lease land and buy supplies to begin farming.

Meeting this need will help me because my children deserve education and farming is my way of earning to pay for their school fees. I have the skill and the motivation. All that stands between me and a better life for them is $250 to start my business.

Thank you for helping Alice fund this need.

Alice is a widow and a very devoted mother. Here at Beyond Fistula we have been helping her family since they were affected by obstetric fistula. Alice is driven to start a small business with the follow-up support of our program. I trust that she will work hard to support herself and her four children with this new income.
