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

A loan helped to buy macadamia seeds and fertilizer.

Ngumbi's story

Ngumbi is thankful to Kiva and its lenders for the previous loan which enabled him to buy maize seeds for planting. He had a bumper harvest and sold the maize at a profit. He used the increased income to provide food and better medical care for his family.

He diversified his business and he's currently doing mixed farming. He is borrowing an additional Kiva loan to purchase macadamia seeds and fertilizers and hopes to get a bumper harvest thus increasing his income. He will use the expected income to pay school fees for his grand children and provide improved nutrition for his family. This will improve his household life standards for the better.

He is grateful to Kiva and its lenders and promises to repay promptly
