Tom's loan finished fundraising, but these other borrowers need your support

A loan helped to buy more goats for trading to raise school fees for his children.

Tom's story

Tom is married with children, who attend school. He deals in goat trading as his major source of income. He has done this job for over 14 years and Kiva has been part of his journey. However, he needs more capital to buy more goats for trading to meet the demands of his growing customer base.

Your loan will enable him to buy the goats for sale. He will use the anticipated income to pay his children's school fees and also to provide them with other needs.

Tom thanks Kiva lenders for the financial support which will transform him economically. His future plan is to venture into other types of livestock, like cows to add on the family income.
