A loan helped to buy a quality dairy cow.
Hello world, meet Hiram - a 35-year-old hardworking, honest, and kind-hearted farmer who hails from the Molo area of Kenya, an area that has wonderful weather patterns that favor crop and dairy farming. He is the father of 3 lovely children who he really loves and adores; they are his “heart beat.” Hiram is from a very humble background and was raised in challenging circumstances, but this did not deter him from achieving his goal of being successful in life. Hiram has been farming for the past 6 years, but his heart is on dairy farming he really enjoys milking and feeding his animals. Because of unpredictable weather, pattern crop farming is not profitable. This is why Hiram has put all his energy into dairy farming and has been able to sell the fruits of his labour (milk) to his neighbors and nearby markets. The Molo area has high demand for milk and dairy products, and Hiram, being an enterprising person, wants to take advantage of that. This is why he is kindly seeking a loan of 65000 Kenyan shillings to be able to buy a quality dairy cow. Hiram projects that the cow will give him 15 litres of milk a day, which will comfortably allow him improve his living conditions and be able to repay the loan on time. With your lending Hiram is going to improve the quality of his dairy farming and introduce zero grazing in the future. Hiram is very determined and focused and plans that, through savings from accumulated profits, he will be able to open a large dairy shop where he will be selling milk and milk products. With the loan, Hiram’s life will permanently change and he will assure his family a bright future and better living standards.
