A loan of $1,200 helped to buy fertilizers and seedlings.


William's story

Since 1997, William has been operating a hardware shop in addition to being a farmer as his major source of income. He grows crops like maize, beans and cassava. He has been able to construct a house to rent, which brings him extra income. He approached Ugafode for a loan of 3,000,000 to buy fertilizers and seedlings to plant. He expects to pay back the loan using income from selling his crops (in the harvest season). His dream is to construct a good residential house and educate all his children up to university level. He says, however, that he faces the challenges of weather changes and lack of enough capital. He thanks the Kiva lenders for the overwhelming support. He is hard working.
