John Koileken Ole
John Koileken Ole K. is 44 years old. He is married to Sempeo K. and is the father of four children.

John is a farmer, which he does on his own piece of land. He has been doing this for the last 10 years.

He learned about KADET through a friend, who is already a registered member of KADET, a Kiva partner. This will be his first loan. He is planning to spend 25,000 Kenyan shillings (KES) to plow; 20,000 KES on harrowing; 20,000 KES on seeds; and 15,000 KES on planting his 10 acres of wheat. Wheat has proved to be doing well in the area due to favorable weather conditions and adequate rainfall.

He hopes to use the profit from the proceeds of this loan to expand his farming activity from small-scale to commercial farming. John's dream is to do large-scale farming and attain financial independence. He is a hardworking man who is determined to achieve his set goals.
