A loan of $250 helped to buy bundles of seedlings and fertilizers.


Morris's story

Morris is married and has eight children who attend school. They live in Mwambalazi, Mombasa, where he works as a farmer. For the past eight years, he’s been farming green vegetables, potatoes and onions to sell to support his home.

He is currently applying for a Kiva loan because he wants to strengthen his business. He plans to use this loan to buy bundles of seedlings and fertilizers at a better price than usual because he has the capacity to buy at wholesale with his Kiva loan. That will make the investment successful, and this is why he’s very competitive when he sells the products. He earns more each time.
