Kassimu, 45, is married and has four children. He lives in the rural area of Msambweni. He’s worked in agriculture since he was a gentleman and has been growing a variety of crops including corn, bananas, and pawpaw, among others, for about three years now. He sells his products in local markets in the town. He’s currently asking for a KES 50,000 loan to buy fertilizer and manure and pay for labor costs. He hopes to get better crop yields and to prepare the soil better because his plan is that his crops improve each season and produce profits so he can live better.
