A loan of $700 helped to buy more seed for his horticulture business.

Paul's story

Paul is a 31-year-old farmer living in the Nkubu area of Eastern Kenya with his wife and one child. He has been doing farming for 15 years. His income comes from the sale of tea, maize, bananas, cabbages, eggs and milk. Besides farming, he has a motorbike which he uses to offer transportation to the residents in the area. His biggest challenge in farming is the lack of sufficient funds and poor markets.

Paul chose Juhudi Kilimo for this loan because they offer secure loans to their farmers at low interest rates. This loan will help Paul develop his horticultural farming by buying more seed for planting, and get more income and thus, improve his family's living standards.
