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

A loan helped to buy another dairy cow that will help her generate more profit to support her family as she starts the year 2021 on a higher note.

Lydia's story

Lydia is a 53-year old mother of three children living in Nandi Hills, an area with beautiful hills that form vivid patterns. Nandi Hills has been the training ground for some of the world’s most prominent athletes like Kipchoge, the INEOS marathon champion.

Demand for cow’s milk in the Nandi Hills area is high, but the supply is low. Lydia has always wanted to have another dairy cow, but a lack of capital has prevented her from getting one. So she is now seeking a loan to buy one. The cow she intends to buy is a breed that produces rich, creamy milk, and more milk will translate into more income.

Through this loan she is going to have more milk to sell to meet buyers’ demands. Lydia's vision is to keep even more dairy cows so that she will be able to support her family comfortably. She hopes to start the year 2020 on a high note.
