Boaz is 42 years old and is married with 5 children. The family survives solely on coffee farming and cattle raising. Boaz has become innovative, and from his small savings he has started a petrol selling business to provide for the off season. He has diversified into cattle fattening to increase his supply of organic manure to put onto his coffee plantation.

Now, he has applied for a loan to buy fertilizers for putting on his plantation during this rainy season in anticipation of higher yields next season. He is excited about the partnership with Kiva through UGAFODE Microfinance.
