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

A loan helped to purchase a dairy cow and increase her milk supply and meet the demand for milk at a profit.

Caroline's story

Caroline is a widow and a mother of four school-going children who wakes up every morning at 5 o’clock to prepare them for school and to go to work on her farm. She is fully dedicated to her work and thinks only of progressing. Caroline resides in the Kakamega area of Kenya, a remote town with harsh living conditions because of the bad terrain in the region. However, it is favorable for dairy farming.

Caroline’s primary sources of income are milk sales and a personal business she engages in to make ends meet. She has managed to take care of her family with her income from selling milk. Caroline has always wanted to take care of another dairy cow but a lack of capital has prevented her from doing so. She is now 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 between 10-16 liters of milk a day. 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, she is going to have more milk and comfortably meet her family demands.
