A loan of $600 helped to purchase a dairy cow.

Peter's story

Peter is a mixed farmer, aged 54 and a father of eight adult children. He has been active in mixed farming for over ten years, producing tea which he sells to Kenya Tea Development Authority and pineapples which go to the local market.

Peter has requested a loan of 50,000 KES from Kiva Partner Juhudi Kilimo to enable him to purchase a better quality breed to ensure better milk production. He says his first loan helped him purchase the first cow and has been of great help. He adds the additional income will help him meet family expenditures.

Peter, like many farmers in the region, says drought is the main undoing in farming business.
