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

A loan helped to buy pesticides.

Peter's story

Peter is a farmer, age 59, and a refugee, living in Yumbe. He is married with 12 children, five of whom are school-going.

He is a farmer who plants cassava, beans, and ground nuts. He is faced with a challenge of drought and the insects that have greatly destroyed his crops, hence leading to low yields.

He would like to buy pesticides to spray on his crops and also buy a water pump that will enable him to spray the crops as this will lead to an improvement in the yields. He is very hopeful that with this done, he will be able to pay his children's school fees, make more money from the sale of the crops, and have a better life style.

He is very grateful to VisionFund and Kiva for the support they have given him to be able to achieve this.
