Angelina'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 to meet the high demand in her area and make more profits to support her family.

Angelina's story

Meet Angelina, a mother who does not give up in the face of adversity. After the realization that farming is a profitable business, Angelina started practicing mixed crop and dairy farming and is now working hard on reaching greater heights. Angelina resides in the Kerugoya area of Kenya, a remote town with harsh living conditions because of the bad terrain in the region. However, it is favorable for dairy farming.

Angelina’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. Angelina 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 between 10-16 liters of milk a day. With this cow, she will produce more milk, which will translate into more income.

Demand for dairy milk in her area is high, but the supply is low. So, through this loan, Angelina is going to have more milk and comfortably meet demand. Angelina'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.
