Miriam'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.
Miriam is a mother of 2 children, one being an adult and the other a junior still in schooling. She is aged 51 and manages her farm with the help of one farmhand. Her farm produce of milk, maize, beans and vegetables are all sold within the local market. She lives with her family in their rural home in Kitale. Miriam has made a loan request of 41,600 KES from Juhudi Kilimo to buy another dairy cow and give a boost to her dairy business. She says the dairy business will improve her farming income and make meeting the family's basic needs more bearable. In addition it will provide milk for the family’s own consumption. She aspires to rank among major dairy suppliers for the local market in the future. Animal diseases remain the major challenge, in her opinion.
