Mohamodu is married with five children. As a way of generating income, he started the produce business in 2000 since he had not gone further with education to get formal employment. Mohamodu has another source of income from his motorcycle, which he always rides when the produce season is off so that he can provide for the family.

He always faces the challenges of the changing seasons for agricultural production, the price fluctuations for the products and limited capital in his business.

Mohamodu wants a loan of 3,000,000/= (three million shillings) to buy more maize and beans for trade since the season for produce is now on. This will help him realize good returns from the business, look after the family and pay school fees for his children.

His dream is to buy a larger piece of land so that he can do commercial growing of maize and beans. He hopes the partnership between him, Ugafode and the Kiva lenders will last and will bring him closer to his dreams.

The organization believes that the risk of offering services to remote clients is outweighed by the benefits to customers and their often underserved communities.
