A loan helped to purchase seedlings, pesticides, and fertilizer.

Kennedy's story

Kennedy is 36 years old and is married with five children. He has had a farming business for 13 years keeping poultry and growing kale, cowpeas, and onions, earning KES 20,000 a month.

This is his first time borrowing to finance his business. He will be using the loan to purchase seedlings, pesticides, and fertilizer. He hopes this will help him to purchase more items in his grocery shop.

His hopes and dreams for the future are to have a successful business and a good family.
