Simon's story

Hey KIVA!!!! Meet Simon, a very happy farmer living in the Kitale area of North Rift Kenya with his wife and three children, of whom two are of school going age. He grows maize, beans and vegetables, which he sells at the local market. He enjoys the harvesting season the most because he gets to eat his labour and this brings in more profits. His biggest challenges are crop pests and diseases, and drought seasons, which lowers food production. Simon chose Juhudi Kilimo for this loan because they help change the lives of farmers. During the training, he learnt that he can borrow money and invest in projects like poultry, dairy and horticultural farming. Simon will use your loan to purchase poultry which will help in boosting up his income. This income will provide shelter for his family and also be able to afford the basic necessities.
