Joyce's story

Joyce is a single lady with no children and she supports her nieces and nephews who are in university. She lives in a village in Githunguri town Kiambu county. Joyce is and astute dairy farmer as she is well known by her neighbors. She owns 7 heads of dairy cattle and she sells her milk to the local dairy plant.

Her main challenge is to pay school fees for her relatives who are in university. With a KIVA loan she will buy another dairy cow which will supplement in her daily milk collection. This will in turn see her profits increase from the sales of the milk and hence be able to pay for the university fees. Joyce has employed 2 people who assist her in taking care of the cows and taking the milk to the local dairy plant. Her hopes in future is to add more dairy cows and see that that her nephews and nieces have completed their education.
