Success Story

John Kamau

Project: Microcredit financing (2004)

,,Due to the loan I could in invest in machines, which make the farm work much easier.”

With financial start up support to success

In 1992, together with his wife and their children John had to flee from war to Kiambu. To be able to feed the family, he and his wife worked on other farms. After his wife attended a training for business management and receiving a microcredit for buying a used mill, the family could start their own chicken farm and corn business. John enjoys the cohesion the farm has brought to his family, because also his children and grand children are actively helping out on the farm and in the fields. But John does not want to rest on his success, but hopes to receive a new loan, to be able to afford a small truck and transport more products and to supply more clients. ,,I am proud of what I have achieved together with my wife and children. If we receive a loan for a transporter, our work will become much easier and we will reach much more clients quickly.’’
