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

A loan helped to buy quality fertilizer, pesticides, and potato seeds.

John's story

John is 49 years old, married, and blessed with three children. He joined Hand in Hand Eastern Africa to benefit from enterprise development, savings mobilization, and financial management training.

John farms potatoes. He is taking a Kiva loan to buy quality fertilizer, pesticides, and potato seeds, which he hopes will increase his production and will lead to increased income. He will use the increased incomes to pay school fees for his kids and provide them with decent clothing and food.

He is grateful for the Kiva lenders and promises to repay promptly.
