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

A loan helped to buy a quality breed of dairy goat and meet the overwhelming demand for milk in her village, and use the profits to improve her standard of living.

Nancy's story

Nancy (a repeat Kiva borrower) is a 35-year-old mother of five children living in Nakuru, a town surrounded by prime agricultural lands which favor large-scale grain farming, dairy and horticultural farming. She is a mixed farmer who has been in this business for the last fifteen years. Of all the activities she involves herself in, dairy goat farming is the closest to her heart. She enjoys waking up every morning to go and milk her dairy goats feeding them with fodder that has high nutritional value. Milking her dairy animals makes Nancy feel very proud and fulfilled.

Dairy farming is a highly profitable business venture, and Nancy wants to take full advantage of it. She would like to expand her dairy business, but the biggest challenge she faces is the lack of capital to grow. She is requesting a loan that she will use to buy a quality breed of dairy goat. She also owns an expansive piece of land, and the excess space will be productively used once she acquires the additional dairy goat. The profits from milk selling will allow Nancy to grow her business further. Nancy has successfully paid back her previous loan and promises to do the same with this loan. With your loan, Nancy dreams of a secure future for her family.

Nancy patiently awaits your kindness.
