Janet'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 improve her milk-vending business and meet the high demand in her area.

Janet's story

Janet, 34, is a mother of three school-going children. She lives in Sotik, a town where the main economic activities include corn and dairy farming.

She is a mixed farmer who has worked on her farm for the last few years to support her family. Today, she has achieved great milestones in terms of expanding her farm. She has managed to take care of her family with her income from selling milk.

Janet has always wanted to keep another dairy cow but a lack of capital has prevented her from doing so. 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. With this cow, she will produce more milk, which will translate into more income. Demand for dairy milk in her area is high, but the supply is low. So, through this loan, Janet is going to have more milk and comfortably meet demand.

Janet's vision is to keep even more dairy cows so that she will be able to build a biodigester, which would help her to save more energy.
