Lucy's story

Lucy is a vibrant woman who is focused on improving her standard of living and that of her family. She is the breadwinner in her household. Lucy is also characterized by her sense of responsibility, her self-sacrifice, and her love for her work, her farm, and her cute children. She lives in Nkubu, Kenya. She is blessed with lovely children, who are her greatest motivators. She perseveres because she wants to provide a better future for them. Lucy’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.

Lucy 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 between 10-16 liters of milk a day. 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, Lucy is going to have more milk and comfortably meet demand. Lucy'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.
