Angelina's story

Hello Kiva lenders!

Availability of credit facilities has been the biggest challenge affecting smallholder woman farmers, especially in Kakamega. Angelina (a 61-year-old mom of 6) is a rural farmer and has been practicing agribusiness for many years. Thanks to her effort and dedication, she always has good dairy and crop production.

Angelina works tirelessly every day of the week on her farm. Since she started a family, her personal and financial obligations have increased very much. She has tried different ways to make money, but keeps coming up short.

Angelina decided that the best way to increase her income was to improve her farm's productivity. To increase milk production, she could either buy more cows or replace her existing cows with more productive breeds. The latter makes more economical sense.

Angelina is seeking a loan from Kiva lenders to purchase another productive dairy cow that will bring her more income and improve her dairy business. She will use the additional income to pay for her children's education and to meet family expenses.

Angelina really hopes for lenders' contributions, and is looking forward to a prosperous year in 2020. Don’t be left behind in inspiring a smallholder farmer. Please click the lend button!
