He started his business in 2011 from a rural area in Katenga, Ruhinda, Mitooma, in order to have an income to sustain him and his family. He is a hardworking man and works 8 hours a day and 6 days a week. His clients are coffee traders. He is faced with the challenge of competition among other farmers but works hard to beat the competition. He hopes the hard work and the loans will start to pay off soon.
He thanks the Kiva lenders for the tremendous work they are doing.
