Kenya
Nanyuki, Kenya / Cereals

A loan of $500 helped to buy cereals to increase his stock.


Gerald's story

71-year-old Gerald is happy that he was able to get a Kiva loan that he has repaid without much difficulty. His farming business has improved and right now he wants to take his cereal business to the next level.

He seeks a loan to buy cereal as additional stock for his business. He hopes that the business will grow into wholesale in the next five years. The challenge that he faces is the competition from other traders, which he feels is healthy for his business.

The extra income the he will raise from the business will improve his standard of living.
