Rosaline's loan finished fundraising, but these other borrowers need your support
A loan helped to build a modern dairy shed.
Rosaline is the true definition of a hard worker and a happy mother. She is a farmer in Siongiroi, growing maize, raising poultry, and engaged in dairy farming. She produces milk and eggs for commercial purposes as opposed to many rural farmers who produce for subsistence. Rosaline 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. Rosaline 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 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, Rosaline will construct a cow shed, which will later come in handy when she scales up and introduces zero-grazing. The long-term impact is 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!
