Stephen's story

Stephen is 39 years old and a farmer. They have five children and they are still studying. His wife helps him on their plot of farmland every day. He is able to earn an income per day to help cover the family expenses. Their standard of living has improved since they have been doing farming, so they want a loan to expand their businesses.

Stephen owns a 6-acre farm where he plans to cultivate ginger. Many studies have suggested that increasing consumption of plant foods like ginger can decrease the risk of various health issues. With the loan of KES 50,000 that he is requesting, he wants to purchase seedlings and fertilizers to cultivate ginger. This loan will help him improve his family’s finances.
