John is a 47-year-old married man who has four children. He has been selling poles for the past five years. In addition, he rears dairy cattle and grows tea and vegetables to earn a living. Since he joined Faulu Kenya in a group called Wendo, he has been able to start dairy farming and put electricity in his home. This is because he was previously guaranteed a loan of Kes. 20,000 from Faulu Kenya by his group members. He has requested a loan of Kes. 30,000 to buy more poles for sale. He hopes to educate his children to the university level. He dreams of owning a lorry in the future for transporting his goods.
