Judith's story

The bravery of Judith, a heroine mother of two children, is the only voice of hope for her family. Judith 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. Judith’s primary sources of income are from 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.

Judith 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 sales 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. Through this loan, Judith is going to have more milk and comfortably meet the demand. Judith'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.
