Joseph's story

Joseph is a single father, aged thirty-seven years, with one daughter. He lives in a rural setting with his child. He is a businessman who deals in agriculture, specifically pineapple and coffee growing. He works six days a week, and each day he works for eight hours. He has been in this business since 2007.

He started this business in order to earn a living because life was not easy. He has acquired this loan so that he can boost his business output by buying organic manure and pesticides, in that he can be able to harvest a large quantity of high-quality products.

He sells his products to traders from the city and those around. He hopes to be the leading supplier of agricultural products, most especially pineapples. However, he faces the challenge of unpredictable weather changes, especially long droughts which affect the crops. He describes himself as a hardworking man.In the photograph is Joseph with his guarantor(right to left) who also signed the waiver form.
