Clevers has requested a loan of 62,400 KES through Kiva’s partner Juhudi Kilimo to purchase and insure a dairy cow. The extra income from this loan will enable him to pay school fees for his children. He would like to build a zero grazing unit [cows are kept confined to stalls to more easily maintain their health, etc. while allowing surrounding land to restore itself] so that he could manage his animals better and also improve his productivity in the future.
Important InformationTo facilitate a partnership between Kiva and Juhudi Kilimo, K-Rep Group (Juhudi Kilimo’s 100% owner) has guaranteed Kiva funds in the event of institutional default. Lenders should be aware that the risk of borrower default remains borne by the lender.
