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

A loan helped to purchase livestock feed, dewormers and hire ground for grazing his livestock.

Joseph's story

Joseph is 57 years old. He is married and supports five members of his family. He is a business man primarily dealing with livestock trading and dairy farming, which has been profitable over the six years he has done it. This is his third loan with VisionFund Kenya.

He intends to use it to purchase dairy feeds, dewormers, nappier grass and hire ground for grazing his cattle. He plans to use the expected profits to improve the housing and provide school fees for his children.

He repaid his previous loan successfully. His future dreams and hopes are to improve business and live well.
