Gideon's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped gideon to buy farm implements, high-quality seeds, good fertilizer, and pesticide.

Gideon's story

“When small scale farmers are given access to credit they are very hard-working,” says Gideon, a smallholder farmer of both crops and livestock. For the past five years, he has been actively involved and making great profits in farming.

Because of how much he likes farming, he has even nicknamed his cows, which makes him a very proud farmer, especially when he is milking them. Through his dairy cows, he is able to get between 10-15 liters a day, and this helps him support his family.

Gideon also practices crop farming, but he has not been making good profits because of poor farming implements. This is why he is kindly seeking a loan to buy farm implements.

Through the loan, he will be able to buy high-quality seeds, good fertilizer, and pesticide that he will use to greatly improve his crop production. Modern farming requires the use of modern techniques. Using high-quality seeds will assure him of a bumper harvest and, hence, increased profit levels.

Gideon is a visionary and his goal for the season is to boost his crop production and be able to get more crop output than in the previous year. All this can be achieved through lenders’ help and goodwill.

Gideon believes that, through the loan, he will turn around his family life and be able to give his children a solid educational background.
