but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

Duke's story

Duke is honest and energetic but with limited resources who lives in the post-conflict Kapcherop area of Kenya. He has been actively and profitably involved in farming.

In Kenya, agriculture is one of the most financially demanding occupations, particularly because of the rising costs of operation, including those of land acquisition and inputs. To meet these costs, farmers have been forced to borrow from financial institutions that sometimes impose very complicated procedures in loan distribution. Some farmers end up hopeless and despondent, and lack the morale to go on.

In a bid to expand his farm, Duke is seeking a 20,000 KES loan to buy farm inputs, such as hybrid seeds and nutrient-rich fertilizers. Expanding his farm will enable him to grow more varieties of crops. This will lead to greater profits and can help him meet his family’s basic needs. He is an enterprising man who wishes to establish a bigger agribusiness farm in the future.
