Agriphina's story

Meet Agriphina, a widow. She is very energetic and resourceful. Agriphina was born and grew up in a remote village in Sotik. This enterprising woman has always demonstrated great skills and knowledge in farming. Her family's main income source is milk from their dairy farm. However, they are also involved in other agricultural activities such as growing vegetables.

The biggest challenge Agriphina faces is satisfying the overwhelming demand for milk in her village. She is seeking a 50,000 KES loan through Kiva's field partner Juhudi Kilimo to buy another dairy cow of good quality. She believes that another cow will enable her to sell more milk, improve her living conditions, and secure the future for her children.

Having gone through training with Juhudi Kilimo, Agriphina is confident that the skills she acquired will help her grow her business, and she will be able to repay the loan.

Agriphina is very motivated because this loan could be the tipping point for a bright future for her family. In 2017, paint a smile on Agriphina’s face by granting her a loan!
