Richard's story

Richard, age 36, is a young diplomat serving the nation of Uganda in Kamwenge. He is a civil servant on government payroll assured of a monthly salary, but the issue is that this money is not enough to do other business activities.

Richard is a married man with one school going child. He has to plan ahead for the family to be self reliant, especially to have food and income, through growing crops like bananas, maize and beans. Richard serves the nation with passion and wishes to become a prominent farmer. He will be very grateful if he is granted the opportunity to collaborate with Kiva through Hofokam Limited, Uganda.

He used the previous loan to to supplement his salary and buy land for farming. He is now requesting a loan to buy more land in order to expand his farm.
