A loan helped to pay for school costs and for the weeding, trimming, harvesting and transportation of the crop.

Groupement Kishumbu's story

Clement has been a coffee grower for a long time. His father started initiating him to this business in 1999.

He is asking for a loan to pay for his children's schooling until his crop is in bloom. The rest of the loan will go to the weeding, trimming, harvesting and transportation of the crop to the sale point. Clement is the fourth person in the picture going from right to left, wearing a green shirt and a knapsack.
