Saponyo started planting wheat in 2004 and the venture so far has been profitable. He is 60 years old and he and his wife, Margaret, have three children. He was introduced to KADET by his friend and this will be his first loan. He plans to use the cash from the loan to buy fertiliser and hire a tractor to prepare his farm for wheat planting. Saponyo plans to start training area residents about farming and its benefits based on his own personal experience.
