Peter
Hello Kiva lenders, meet Peter. He is a hardworking smallholder farmer from Murang’a, Kenya. Peter has a wife and four children. He has been doing mixed farming for 20 years! He makes money selling eggs, tea and greens, and also offers transportation solutions using his motorcycle.

Peter stated that he enjoys mixed farming because it not only offers the highest return on the farm business, but also provides a balance in productive systems of farming. His biggest challenge is raising capital for growth.

Peter is seeking a loan to purchase a chaff cutter, a dairy goat and poultry. These assets will boost his mixed farming practice, plus ensure efficient utilization of land, labor, equipment, by-products and other resources on the farm.

Income generated from this investment will go toward his highest monthly expense: farming costs. Your loan will help in supplying all the nutritional needs of Peter’s family.
