Kiprotich B. is 35 and married with four children aged between four and twelve. He is a dairy farmer in Litein town in Rift Valley, Kenya. He has been in the dairy business for fifteen years now and employs one farmhand. He sells his milk to the local market. His major challenges have been a lack of enough animal feed and diseases that affect his cows’ milk production.

Kiprotich has requested a loan of 40,000 KES through Kiva’s partner, Juhudi Kilimo, to purchase a dairy cow. The extra income from the sale of milk will help to pay the school fees for his children. He would like to have a zero grazing unit (stall feeding) within the next five years.
