Silvia'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 in order to meet the high demand in her area and to support her family who depend on her completely.

Silvia's story

The bravery of Silvia, a heroine mother, has always been the voice of hope for her family, who completely depend on her.

Silvia resides in the Nkubu 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. Silvia’s primary sources of income are from crop farming, 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.

Silvia 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, Silvia is going to have more milk and comfortably meet the demand.

Silvia'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.
