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

A loan helped to buy fertilizer, pesticide, and good-quality seeds.

Paul's story

Paul is a smallholder farmer – a wise farmer whom his neighbors and fellow farmers respect as a mentor. He farms a small plot of land in the green, lush hills near Kenyenya, in the Nyanza region of Kenya.

Like many other farmers in the region, he has been planting maize as a staple crop for as long as he can remember. With time, the fertility of his land has started to dwindle, and whenever he plants maize, the yields go down with each season. Paul has also been affected by weeds.

Today, Paul is requesting a loan from Juhudi Kilimo via Kiva lenders to buy fertilizer, pesticide, and good-quality seeds. Through this loan, Paul is going to increase his crop production, and this will translate to an improved income level.

This loan will change Paul’s living standards, and there is no doubt that if you invest in him, 2016 will be a great year for him.

Paul counts on your help and hopes for your attention.
