A loan helped to buy a quality breed of dairy cow.

Lilies's story

Lilies, 67, has been practicing mixed farming for the past three years and has managed to earn a decent income. Her primary source of income has been milk, eggs, crops. She passionately loves dairy farming, and when asked what is most enjoyable about dairy farming, she stated, “feeding my cows.” She sells milk to her neighbors and to the local market, but the demand has been overwhelming, and she cannot meet it.

For this reason, she is seeking a loan to buy an extra dairy cow, which will assist in increasing milk productivity. The dairy cow that she plans to buy is not just an ordinary cow, but it’s a quality breed of dairy cow that will be producing between 10 and 20 liters of milk a day. This extra production will immediately translate to more profit margins and increased income levels. Profits from selling milk will be used to repay the loan in full, and the extra income will be used to increase her business enterprise. Lilies is very visionary, and she intends that in the near future, she will start adding value to her milk business through packaging the milk before selling it, and she also plans to start selling dairy products such as yogurt.

Lilies dreams of having a successful business and she’s aware that she has to work hard to accomplish that, but with a little help it could be easier for her to fulfill her goals, so loan now and help him get closer to them.
