A loan of $200 helped to buy manure for his coffee plantation.

Jamson's story

Jamson who is in his mid-30’s is married with 7 school-aged children, some of whom he adopted from his relatives who have passed away. He started a cycle transport business after he had to drop out of school for lack of school fees. He realized that a cycle transport business alone could not sustain him and his family so he decided to invest in coffee production. He has now started reaping big from his coffee farm and now wishes to invest more in his farm. Jamson is proud of educating his children and taking care of the entire family as he compares himself to his friends who finished their studies. His main challenge now is inadequate capital to buy organic manure to put in his newly planted coffee. He therefore wants to take this loan to buy manure for the coffee gardens.
