A loan helped to buy a high-yield dairy cow.

Johana's story

Meet Johana, a 53-year-old farmer from the Kapsowar region of Kenya. Johana lives in a very traditional home, characterized by granaries and older huts. He practices mixed farming, but his focus is more on the dairy side of his business. The high milk demand and good prices in the Kapsowar market is an incentive for farmers, including Johana, to step up their milk production and sales. Johana is seeking a loan from Kiva lenders to buy a high-yield dairy cow. He is also going to use a portion of the money to insure the cow to cover uncertainties. Your loan will help a lot to increase Johana's milk supply to clients. Additional income from this investment will help him to scale up his business and meet his family's basic needs.
