Sipora has made a loan request of 62,400 Kes through Juhudi Kilimo to purchase and insure a dairy cow. The extra income from the sale of milk will help her provide for the basic needs of her family. She, however, will face the challenge of fluctuation in the market prices of milk and diseases which will affect her production. Sipora hopes to acquire at least three high-yield dairy cows in the next five years.
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.
