Anna's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to build a modern dairy shed.

Anna's story

Anna is the true definition of a hard worker and a happy mother. She is a farmer in Nkubu, growing maize, raising poultry, and engaging in dairy farming. She produces milk and eggs for commercial purposes, as opposed to many rural farmers who produce for subsistence.

Anna also grows maize for food and sales. These commercial activities place her in a better position to engage in other agricultural businesses, which she does.

Anna is seeking a loan from Kiva lenders via Juhudi Kilimo to construct a cow shed. This will help significantly in managing the animals’ health and hygiene.

She has been in the farming business for at least 10 years, and she has no plans to quit, as she finds farming to be not only fulfilling, but also lucrative. However, her biggest challenges are the poor road network and the lack of market.

With your loan, Anna will construct a cow shed, which will later come in handy when she scales up and introduces zero grazing. The long term effect will be an increase in productivity and improved animal health. The additional income from this development will go to her children’s education.

Kindly lend to a Kenyan farmer with great dreams! She is really grateful to have a chance like this.
