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

A loan helped to buy organic fertilizers and pesticides for his cabbages in order to get good harvests to sell and make profit to pay school fees for his children.

Ibrahim's story

Ibrahim is married with children who attend school. He works in agriculture, mainly growing vegetables such as cabbages, and this has been his main source of income for some time.

He opted for vegetables because they mature in a short period of time, and the market for them is readily available due to the fact that people eat them every day. His clients include most of the food markets in Mpigi and the surrounding areas.

Ibrahim applied for a loan of 5,000,000 UGX to buy organic fertilizers and pesticides for his cabbage farm. He is hopeful that he will harvest good yields, which will attract competitive prices, thereby fetching huge profits. He hopes to use the money to pay his children's school fees and also to service the loan.

He appreciates Kiva lenders for their support.
