Rose's loan finished fundraising, but these other borrowers need your support

A loan helped to buy a dairy cow to improve her milk vending business so as to meet the high demand in her area.

Rose's story

Rose is a 41-year-old mother of 7 who has borrowed previous Kiva loans and successfully repaid them. Rose’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. Rose 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 milk. With this cow, she will produce more milk, which will translate into more income. Demand for dairy milk in the area is high, but the supply is low. So, through this loan, Rose is going to have more milk and comfortably meet the demand. Rose'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.
