A loan of $725 helped to buy farm inputs (lettuce, carrot, cabbage and okra seeds, and fertilizer)..


Obed's story

Obed is married and has two children who go to school. He lives in his own house with his family and does not support anyone else. He is a farmer and works in a guest house as a server and driver. With this loan he intends to buy farming inputs (lettuce, carrot, cabbage and okra seeds and fertilizer) to use in his farm.

In the future he wants to move on in his professional life and become part of the management at the guest house where he works, to increase his salary. With this he promises to repay this loan so that he can ask for more loans in future. The challenge at the moment is the rainy season, it is difficult to prepare and work on the land, and the pressure of work does not allow him to dedicate enough time to the gardening activities.
