Margaret'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 use the profits to build a biogas digester in the future.

Margaret's story

Margaret is a humble farmer who wakes up 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 hubby, has a lovely family.

Margaret resides in the Kenyenya 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. Margaret’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.

Margaret 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 her area is high, but the supply is low.

So, through this loan, Margaret is going to have more milk to comfortably meet demand. Margaret'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.
