Dorcas'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 meet the overwhelming demand for milk in her village.


Dorcas's story

Lenders! This is Dorcas, a 22-year-old woman. She is very happy to share her profile on this platform. She is full of hope and expectations for success. She believes that through hard work and perseverance, everything in life is achievable.

The Siongiroi area is very populated, and the demand for milk and dairy products is very high. Like many farmers from the region, Dorcas finds dairy farming very enjoyable, and she stated that the most enjoyable part about dairy farming is the increased profits.

Her biggest challenge is meeting the demand, which is really high. She lacks funds to increase her dairy farming and is seeking a loan of 60,000 KES to buy an additional dairy cow.

For smallholder farmers, accessing funds without collateral security is not an easy task, but through institutions such as Juhudi Kilimo via Kiva, she feels relieved knowing that her dream will be achieved and that she will be able to buy an additional dairy cow.

The extra income she will get will be used to fully repay the loan. Dorcas is very thankful for your contribution in advance.
