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

A loan helped to buy an additional dairy cow to improve her milk vending business so as to meet the high demand in her area and use the profits to build a biodigester in the future.

Esther's story

Esther is a modest mother who wakes up early every morning to work on her farm. She is fully dedicated to her work and thinks only of progressing. She is happily married and, together with her husband, has a lovely family. Esther resides in the Eldoret area of Kenya, a remote town with harsh living conditions because of the bad terrain in the region. However, it is favourable for dairy farming.

Esther’s primary sources of income are milk sales and a personal business she engages in to make ends meet. She has managed to take care of her family with her income from selling milk. Esther has always wanted to take care of another dairy cow but a lack of capital has prevented her from doing so. She is now seeking a loan to buy an additional dairy cow to improve her milk vending business.

The cow she intends to buy is a breed that produces rich creamy milk. With this cow, she will produce more milk, which will translate into more income. Demand for dairy milk in the her area is high, but the supply is low. So, through this loan, Esther is going to have more milk and comfortably meet demand.

Esther's vision is to keep even more dairy cows so that she will be able to build a biodigester, which would help her to save more energy.
