Omar is a resident of Likoni, Kenya. He is a farmer who has carried out tree and fruit farming for the last ten years. He started the process on a half an acre plot and has seen the business grow to two acres. The business has been a source of help to his family and after being introduced to Kiva partner Milango by his friends, he is applying for a loan of 10,650 Kenyan shillings to purchase seeds and fertilizers.
Omar believes the extra income from this loan will help meet his family's needs. Owing to the challenges attributed to seasonal weather, Omar has an ambition to purchase a motorcycle as an additional source of income.
