Beatrice's story

Beatrice is a woman eager to get ahead. She is a 32-year-old mother who lives with her family in the Siongiroi area of Kenya. She is blessed with a lovely family, which is her greatest motivation in life to persevere because she wants to provide them a better future.

Beatrice was unable to study to get a professional career because of the economic situation that her family faced. However, she never gave up and has been practicing farming for the past 8 years. She is an early riser who goes to her farm to earn a living, and has space there to increase her dairy farming.

Beatrice started farming on her husband's farm. Today, the farm is home to large dairy cows. One way Beatrice has chosen to increase her income is through improving milk production on her farm by starting dairy goat farming. To achieve this, she is requesting a loan to buy a quality breed of dairy goat. Through the loan, she will be able to satisfy the goat milk demand in her village.

Beatrice's vision in the future, once she has accumulated more money from the dairy goat she has bought, is to buy a chaff cutter that she will use to cut hay into small even pieces that the goats will enjoy. With more to chew, they will need more to drink and this will lead to more milk for Beatrice's family to consume and sell.
