Jeniffer's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to buy an additional dairy cow to improve her milk vending business so that in the future she can build a biodigester.

Jeniffer's story

Jeniffer (33 years old mom of 4) lives in a small, isolated community in the Siongiroi area of Kenya. Despite a difficult living situation and general lack of access to the outside world, she is a hardworking farmer. She began farming few years ago. Today she has achieved great milestones in terms of diversifying from vegetable farming by introducing farm animals such as dairy cows and poultry. She also grows vegetables on her farm.

Jeniffer has managed to take care of her family with her income from selling milk. She 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. With this cow, she will produce more milk, which will translate into more income. Demand for milk in the Siongiroi area is high, but the supply is low. So, through this loan, Jeniffer is going to have more milk and comfortably meet demand.

Jeniffer'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.
