Smallholder farmers in extreme poverty receive the bulk of their income at harvest, once or twice a year.
Without savings or access to credit, farmers liquidate productive assets (such as livestock) or use informal borrowing to cope with income shocks.
To equip rural communities in Kuria West District with money management skills and access financial services and build income opportunities so that these families can weather economic shocks in a sustainable and scalable way.
Our Big Idea
Provide people living in rural extreme poverty with access to financial literacy trainings and basic financial services as a pathway to semi-formal and formal financial markets.
