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

A loan helped to support Joseph to buy more potatoes and other vegetables to boost his business.

Joseph's story

Joseph is 47 years old. He is blessed with a wonderful spouse with whom he works selling vegetables together to bring up their four children who are 25, 21, 15, and 3 years old.

He enjoys running this business with his wife as it is profitable. Though it is a young business it has stabilised well and brings him good profits.

The major challenge he faces is sourcing for potatoes as they come from far away towns and so he has to order in bulk and hire transport. This however does not discouraged him as he is convinced that, as the business continues to grow, it will only get better.

He enjoys the fact that he is also able to support other farmers in the course of running his business. His last loan helped boost his business and he was able to repay it.

Joseph's dream is to grow the business and be able to supply more vegetables to rural markets.
