Moses' Group

Mwahera, Coast, Kenya / Agriculture

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

A loan helped to buy inputs for his tree farm inputs (seedlings, fertilizer) and pay for technical training and maintenance.

Moses' Group's story

Moses is a twenty-five-year-old dryland farmer, husband, and father of one child. His wife is a farmer too. Moses does poultry farming, keeps cattle and grows food crops. Due to erratic rains, pests and diseases, and the difficulty of marketing his chickens, his agricultural endeavors prove challenging. Regarding the KOMAZA microforestry program, Moses says, "The KOMAZA program is good as it avails inputs and trains farmers in its projects. Being in a KOMAZA group gives [me] skills and [we] can share a lot as a group then improve [our] businesses." Moses intends to use the profits he receives from his tree farm to build a good house, feed his family better meals, and buy clothing. He also sees the KOMAZA program as a way to "ensure quality education" for his children.
