Derick's story

Derick is a 21-year-old man who is passionate for life. He is ready and optimistic to succeed in life, no matter what.

At his age and with no advanced education to offer him a job and cushion him from unemployment hardships, he opted to use the small plot he inherited from his parents to practice farming to earn a living and secure his future.

He is from Maua, where the climate is very favorable and the soil is fertile. His farm produce includes vegetables, maize, milk, eggs, and coffee, which he sells locally.

He is seeking a loan to purchase modern farm inputs such as nutrient fertilizers, pesticides, and hybrid seeds to use on his farm. He is hopeful to get quality and quantity of output that is very competitive in the market, sell it, and get more income.

He says he will use the income to pay back the loan, build himself a modern house, support his parents, and save for the future. He says he is planning to venture into business and own a big retail shop in his area.
