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

A loan helped a single dad to buy farm inputs (high-quality seeds and nutrient-rich fertilizers) to improve his farm and use the profits to educate his children.

Fredrick's story

With good health and strong stands, Fredrick (a repeat Kiva borrower) has faced up to the hardships in his life. He is a single father with five children under his care. Fredrick’s desire to get ahead is admirable because, despite his age and the obstacles he has experienced, he hasn't weakened in his efforts to achieve his objective. What he sets out to do, he achieves.

Through the profits from his farm, Fredrick has managed to take care of his family's needs and also give his children a good education. Through this loan, he will purchase farming inputs such as high-quality seeds and nutrient-rich fertilizers that he will use to greatly improve his crop production. Modern farming requires the use of modern techniques, and high-quality seeds will assure him of a bumper harvest and increased profits.

Fredrick’s plan for this season is to boost his farm's productivity, and this can only be achieved if the wonderful Kiva lenders extend their goodwill to him. Make a $25 loan or more to push Fredrick’s dream closer to reality and help him keep his big smile. Please support this talented farmer and loan now.
