Tsuma is 45 years old and lives in the Samburu village in the coastal region with his wife, mother and seven children.
Tsuma buys goats for fattening then resells. He provides goat meat to local butchers. Tsuma has 4 years of experience in this field. Selling goat meat products to local markets helps Tsuma earn a monthly income. Unfortunately, it is not enough to cover his big family’s everyday costs. So, Tsuma has applied for this loan.
With the loan proceeds, he would purchase 5 goats. He will raise and fatten them for five to six months and resell them at a profit in the local livestock bazaar. This will significantly increase Tsuma’s income and will enable him to ensure a better future for his seven children.
