Desmond's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to pay for oil palm seedlings.

Desmond's story

Desmond manages his mother's organic and fair-trade certified oil palm plantation. He lives in Akim-Asuom in the Kwaebibirem District of the Eastern Region of Ghana, West Africa.

Desmond believes organic oil palm is sustainable and helps develop his community through job creation and infrastructural fair trade projects.

In this regard, he wants to secure a Kiva microloan so that he can expand his oil palm field to create more development as well as be able to continue catering for his education and that of his siblings, and to improve his family’s lifestyle.
