Fridah's story

Fridah’s self-discipline has helped in giving her family a solid reputation. She is a very hardworking woman and very amazing considering the fact that she is the sole bread winner of her family. Fridah was born in one of the poorest families. The biggest challenge that affects smallholder farmers in Kenya is the lack of reliable credit sources. Fridah has big dreams for her life but is limited by a lack of funds to implement the ideas. Fridah is a hardworking farmer who hails from a remote village in the Chuka region of Kenya. Thanks to her efforts, she has been able to scale up the heights of her family's prosperity. She is borrowing KES 70,000 from Kiva lenders to purchase another high yielding dairy cow and milk cans to expand her milk vending business. The new cow will boost milk production on the farm. As a result, she will have a larger quantity for both consumption and sales. With the money from the additional sales, she will be able to pay back her loan on time. With the increased income from the loan, Fridah plans to spend money to settle the high farming production costs. In the long run, her family will realize an improved standard of living.
