Robert's story

Robert is a first-time borrower who runs a tea-growing farm, which is his major source of income. He started growing tea in 1993 with hopes of using the profits from the business to educate his five children, who are all in school at the moment. His business is in his local cell of residence and his major clients are the traders in the area. He is a hard-working man but is faced with a challenge of weather which negatively affects the quantity he harvests and reduces his profit. Despite the challenge of weather, Robert is determined to carry on farming to be able to achieve his dreams. He hopes to use the loan money to buy fertilizer for his farm.
