Julius's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped to purchase and insure a dairy cow.
Julius is aged 29 and married with one child aged four. He has been in active farming for seven years and produces beans, maize, potatoes and wheat for the local market and middlemen. He earns additional income from plowing others farmers' farms. Julius has requested a loan of 63,000 KES from Kiva partner, Juhudi Kilimo, to purchase and insure a dairy cow. He says the additional income will provide for his family's basic needs and improve their living standards. He reiterates that dairy farming is currently lucrative and he looks forward to buying two more dairy cows to earn a better income. However, Julius notes that animal diseases are a challenge to farmers. He commends Juhudi Kilimo services and notes that they are very fast.
