Joseph's story

Joseph is 50 years old and married with four children. His wife is a petty trader and she also supports the home. His children are excelling well in school and Joseph hopes to give them a good quality education.

Joseph is a farmer who grows cassava and yams on his farm. He has been in the farming business for five years. He loves farming because he is happy whenever he harvests his crops. Joseph is a client of Kiva partner, Lift Above Poverty Organization, and is requesting a loan of 100,000 NGN to clear his farmland and purchase more cassava seedlings to plant during the next planting season. He sends his thanks to all Kiva lenders.
