David's story

Wonderful Kiva community, this is David. He is polite, devoted, responsible, and hardworking. David is happily married to his wife, who runs a general store, and has been blessed with two children.

He engages in horticulture farming to feed and provide for his family. David hails from a region where farming skills are passed on from one generation to another, and he chose to venture into farming to sustain himself. To ensure he provides for his family, he offers his produce to specific markets with specific needs, thus increasing his revenue. The major challenges that farmers from his area face are weather conditions that are sometimes harsh and a lack of capital.

David has applied for a 50,000 KES loan through Kiva's field partner ECLOF Kenya to buy farming inputs such as certified seeds and high-nutrient fertilizer, as well as to hire labor. Greater profits from an increased yield will change his life and the lives of his entire household because he will be able to raise their living standard and pay for his children's education.

David has a great desire to succeed and hopes that Kiva lenders will listen to his request and help him better his life. He thanks his lenders for their generous support and dreams of a stable future for his family as he educates his children.
