A loan helped to buy mulches to boost production.

Stephen's story

Stephen is a married farmer who grows coffee as his sole source of income. He is the breadwinner of the family, so he works tooth and nail to make ends meet. Stephen is standing with his wife in his farm in the photo.

Stephen's customers are traders in the nearby markets; these are small scale businesses that mainly make wines and coffee for sale. However, Stephen is challenged by infertile soils that reduce both his yields and profits. For this reason, he is seeking a loan to buy mulches that will improve soil nutrition to boost production.

Stephen believes these mulches will make his profit margins soar from increased sales, thereby helping him regain financial stability. Thank you, funders.
