David's story

David is a farmer aged 43 who works in coffee farming. He is married with 6 children aged 21, 18, 16, 15, 11 and 9 years old, and only 3 attend school. He has applied for a loan of UGX 2,500,000 (two million, five hundred thousand shillings) to buy coffee seeds for his coffee farming. He started his business in 2011 from a rural area in Katenga, Ruhinda, Mitooma, in order to have an income to sustain him and his family. He is a hardworking man and works 8 hours a day and 6 days a week. His clients are coffee traders. He is faced with the challenge of competition among other farmers but works hard to beat the competition. He hopes the hard work and the loans will start to pay off soon. He thanks the Kiva lenders for the tremendous work they are doing.
