Paul's story

Meet Paul, 25, a young farmer who started in agri-business at the age of 15 to get by. He hails from Kisii, a region of Kenya known for banana and tea farming, where he lives with his wife and child. For a living, Paul sells milk and food crops from his farm into the local market. He makes extra money engaging in other small businesses to take better care of his small family. He enjoys taking care of his child to free his wife to do domestic chores. His major challenge is going miles downhill to fetch water for domestic and farm use. To solve this problem, Paul is seeking a loan to purchase a water tank. His plan is to trap rainwater and store it in the tank. The water will be used for domestic purposes, for watering plants and for the cow to drink, too. This will save the family a great deal of trouble and time going to fetch water in the river.
