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

A loan helped to buy cows and sheep to fatten up and later resell at a profit.

Molonko's story

Molonko is 32 years old and single. He is supporting two members of the family. He is a farmer on his third loan cycle and has been growing crops like maize and potatoes and rearing livestock for the last 12 years. He earns a monthly income of KES 10,000.

With the loan, he plans to buy cows and sheep that he can fatten up and later resell at a profit. With the anticipated income, he will be able to repay his loan and reinvest in his business. His hope and dream for the future is to live, successfully, a life of no poverty.
