A loan helped To purchase and insure a dairy cow.
Rebecca is a dairy farmer from Kisii town in western Kenya. She has been practicing dairy farming for 30 years and employs one farmhand. Her main product is milk, which she sells locally. Rebecca is 48 years old and a married mother of five children who are all adults. Her youngest child is currently attending school. She has requested this loan of 35,000 Kenyan shillings through Juhudi Kilimo to purchase and insure a dairy cow. She says that her family will be guaranteed enough milk for consumption and her income will increase through the sale of milk. She will therefore be able to pay school fees for her child with ease. She says that her biggest challenge has been lack of a market for her product. She plans to increase the number of her dairy cows in the future to enable her to sell milk on a large scale.
