Noah
Wonderful people! Meet Noah, a hardworking and strong man who hails from the Molo area in Kenya. This is an area well-known to be fertile, and it has favorable weather patterns that support farming. Noah is a very young and ambitious person, being only 20 years of age, and his goal in life is to succeed. That’s what keeps him moving.

After finishing his high school, Noah decided to venture into farming. He has been doing farming for the past three years. Because of a lack of financial resources he was not able to go to college, but that did not kill his dream. He has been saving money for college fees, through farming.

Noah is seeking a KES 20,000 loan. The loan will enable him to start poultry farming, so that he can accumulate more profits and save more. Then he may be able to achieve his dream of going to college. Through the profits he will accumulate, Noah is sure that he will repay the loan, pay his tuition, and be able to improve his living conditions and help his parents.
