Duncan's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped to construct a dairy shed.
Meet Duncan, a rural farmer who lives on a small piece of land with his wife and four children in Litein, Kenya. He has been a farmer for the last 16 years. He makes ends meet selling milk, eggs, and tea produced on his farm. His hobby is milking ‘Milo’ (the name of his dairy cow). However, drought in the region usually leads farmers to take losses due to crop failure. Currently, Duncan can barely meet his family expenses. Duncan is seeking a loan to construct a cowshed. This structure will enable his dairy animals to have access to clean drinking water. Cows need water to produce milk since water makes up 80% of milk. Without a shed, cows roam to the river and drink dirty water that brings about infections.Your loan will help Duncan improve animal health and milk production in his farm. The money from the increased income will repay the loan. In the long run, Duncan's family will enjoy more income.
