Simon's story

Simon is a father of four children with the youngest two still attending school. He has been in farming for 20 years and currently employs one farmhand. He produces maize, milk and vegetables for the local market. Simon has requested a loan of 30,000 KES from Kiva partner Juhudi Kilimo to buy poultry birds. He says this expansion and diversification will provide his family with supplementary food and income to meet other basic needs, mainly the children's education. Simon is however concerned with the poor road network and animal diseases which eat so much into farmers' incomes.
