A loan of $975 helped to buy farm inputs, irrigation equipment and expand his banana farming.

Godfrey's story

Godfrey is 28 years old and married with one three-year-old child. He has a mixed farm in Nkubu town in eastern Kenya that produces bananas, tomatoes and maize. He has been in the farming business for five years now and employs one farmhand. He sells all his products to the local market.

Godfrey has requested a loan of 80,000 KES through Kiva partner, Juhudi Kilimo, to expand his banana farm. He intends to use this loan to buy farm inputs, irrigation equipment and improve on the quality of his bananas. The income from this project will help him provide for the basic needs of his family. His major challenges have been unpredictable weather conditions and fluctuations in the market price of his products. He is planning to acquire another piece of land in future to enable him to expand his banana farming.
