Fred's story

Fred is an illiterate married man who could not find a job for many years. He therefore suffered in poverty until he discovered the secret of growing tomatoes, which always have a ready market. He has since bought himself a number of pieces of land and is now doing quite well growing tomatoes.

He is now able to educate his children and has bought a simple grain milling machine. With this loan, he will buy tomato seeds, pesticides and mulch for the tomato garden. He hopes for a better livelihood for himself and family. He is a very hardworking man.
