Joachim's story

Joachim is married and living in Bundibugyo, Uganda. He is a farmer who mainly grows cocoa. Besides that he decided to start a shop selling phone spares and phone accessories to meet his family's basic needs. He used the previous loan to buy phone spare parts to sell and appreciates Kiva for funding him in the last 3 loans. His dream is expanding his business to a big selling center, but competition and insufficient funds hinder his progress. He is a very hardworking man who now requests a loan to buy more phone accessories to sell.
