Elizabeth has requested a loan of 41,600 KES from Kiva partner Juhudi Kilimo to buy and insure a dairy cow. Farming is her only source of income, and she believes the acquisition of a dairy cow will help her meet her family's basic needs with ease. Her goal is to venture into poultry farming as well in future.
While Elizabeth notes that drought and animal diseases are inherent problems in farming, she is determined to succeed in the business despite these challenges.
