Kuume is 33 years old, married and blessed with one child. He is a farmer and has been in this business for the last five years. His farm is in a productive area, which has proved to be good for maize farming. He learned about Kiva partner, KADET, through a marketing campaign carried out by KADET staff in his area of residence. This will be his third loan, with which he is planning to buy maize seed and fertilizers.

Kuume hopes to use the profit from this loan to acquire more land for farming to increase his maize production and educate his child. His hope and dream is to become a large-scale farmer and buy a bigger piece of land. He is a particular man who can do more if supported financially.
