With this in mind, he wants to buy seeds to enable him to plant on a large scale where he hopes to gain high yields and later sell for income. Francis says that with income from the big sales, he will be able to build a permanent house for his family.

Hardworking Francis is challenged by the fluctuations in prices in the agricultural produce market.His however grateful to KIVA for the financial support.
