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

A loan helped to buy farm inputs such as high-quality seeds and fertilizers to improve his farming and give his children a good foundation.

Fred's story

Agriculture is the greatest contributor to the Kenyan GDP, thanks to the efforts of hardworking men like Fred (pictured above). A large percentage of Kenyans (65%) are directly or indirectly involved in agricultural production, and a large share of the food that people eat comes from vendors who sell in the rural marketplace.

Fred is a 32-year-old mixed farmer based in the Kenyenya area of Kenya. He is the proud father of three school-going children whom he truly loves and adores. Fred describes his upbringing as challenging, so he is doing everything in his power to provide a good foundation for his children and help secure their future. Fred himself was unable to study for a professional career due to his family's economic situation.

Fred has always had an affinity for farming; he has even nicknamed one of his cows. He is a very proud farmer, especially when milking his cows, which produce between 10-15 liters of milk per day, thereby helping him to support his family. He also keeps animals on his farm.

Fred also practices crop farming, but he has not been earning good profits due to poor farming inputs. He is therefore seeking a loan to buy farm inputs such as high-quality seeds and fertilizers that he will use to improve his crop production. Modern farming requires the use of modern techniques, and high-quality seeds will ensure a bumper harvest and increased profits.
