A loan helped to purchase a high-yielding dairy cow and milk cans to grow her milk-vending business and realize her dream of an improved living standard.


Margaret's story

If you are looking for a mum who can sacrifice anything for the happiness of her children, look no further than Margaret (a mother with two children in school). After her search for gainful employment seemed futile, she decided to venture into farming. She considers this the best decision she has ever made. Margaret is a mixed dairy and crop farmer, work she has done for more than ten years.

Margaret is an energetic smallholder female farmer. From Kiva lenders, she is borrowing KES 70,000 to purchase a high-yielding dairy cow and milk cans to grow her milk-vending business. This cow will boost milk production on the farm. As a result, she will have more milk for both consumption and sales. With the money from the additional sales, she will be able to repay her loan on time.

With the increased income from the loan, Margaret plans to settle the high farming cost of production. In the long run, her family will realize an improved standard of living. Be inspired and don’t hesitate to click that lend button on your computer!
