Peter's story

Peter joined Hand in Hand in Hand Eastern Africa to benefit from savings, enterprise-development and financial-management training. He is a maize and beans farmer.

He is borrowing a Kiva loan to purchase seeds and fertilizers and hopes this will increase his production, hence increasing his income. Peter will use the anticipated income to cater for food, shelter, clothing, school fees and medical care for his family. He is grateful to Kiva and its lenders and promises to repay promptly.
