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

A loan helped to plant more pineapples to increase production.

Stephen's story

Stephen, aged 61, is married with children who are in school. He is a small scale pineapple farmer and it is from this business that Stephen is able to earn money to sustain his family.

Stephen appreciates the previous Kiva funding that enabled him to have a good harvest. However, he needs to increase production to meet his growing clientele, thus the need for another credit facility to plant more pineapples.

He hopes to double his harvest next season, which will ultimately increase his income, to provide for his family. His future plan is to add value to his pineapples through making juice and wine. Stephen appreciates the support.
