Eric's loan finished fundraising, but these similar borrowers need your support
A loan helped to buy additional pigs to improve his pig farming business.
Eric (a repeat kiva borrower) is a modest farmer who wakes up every morning to work on his farm. He's fully dedicated to his work and thinks only of progressing. Eric resides in Limuru, a town whose surroundings have vast agricultural potential with numerous small farms and also vast agricultural enterprises. Eric’s primary sources of income are milk sales, pigs, and a personal business he engages in to make ends meet. He's managed to take care of his family with his income from selling milk. Eric has always wanted to have more pigs, but lack of capital has prevented him from doing so. He's seeking a loan to buy additional pigs to improve his pig farming business. His remote area has demand for pig products such as pig meat. The demand for pig products in his area is high, but the supply is low. With this loan, Eric is going to have more pigs to comfortably meet demand. Eric's vision is to have even more pigs.
