Koitat's story

Koitat N. is 39 years old and married to Kibiyoto N.. He is a father of three children, all of whom are currently attending school. Koitat is a farmer and he has been in the farming business for the last six years.

He learned about Kiva Field Partner 'KADET' from other members in his home area who had already registered as KADET clients. Koitat is now on his second loan cycle with the organization and with this loan he plans to plant twenty acres of wheat, which has been doing very well in his area. With the profits he hopes to make from the proceeds of this loan, he plans to lease more land for farming to increase his wheat production. The area has favorable climate conditions for wheat farming, thus making him think of these operations as a sole specialty.

His future dream is to buy a bigger piece of land whereby he can expand his wheat farming for commercial purposes and be the leading farmer in his area.
