Chepkirui's story

Chepkirui is 27 years old and a modest mother who wakes up early every morning to work on her farm. She is fully dedicated to her work and only thinks of progressing. Chepkirui resides in the Sotik area of Kenya, a remote town with harsh living conditions because of the region's bad terrain. However, the region is favorable for dairy farming.

Her primary sources of income are crops, milk sales, and a personal business that helps her to make ends meet. She has managed to take care of her family with her income from selling milk. Chepkirui has always wanted to have another dairy cow, but the lack of capital has prevented from accomplishing this goal. She is 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, which will translate into more income. Demand for dairy milk in her area is high, but the supply is low. With this loan, Chepkirui will have more milk to comfortably meet the demand. Her vision is to have even more dairy cows.
