A loan helped To buy dairy goats.
Beatrice is a resident of Nkubu. She is a farmer and has a mixed farm that produces tea, fruits, and vegetables for the local market. She has been in farming for fifteen years. She has three children, and all of them are school-going. Beatrice has made a loan request of 50,000 KES from Kiva partner, Juhudi Kilimo, to buy dairy goats. She says she will use the income to pay for the education of her children and improve their living standards. She aspires to expand her farm through the purchase of more parcels of land. She mentions the high cost of farm supplies as a major challenge coupled with pests and diseases. She says that Juhudi Kilimo's strength is its fast loan processing.
