A loan helped to buy a dairy cow.


Lucy's story

Lucy is a dairy cow farmer and she lives in Embu. She is a hardworking lady as she is well known by her neighbors. She enjoys taking care of her cow.

She is passionate about dairy farming. Her challenge is that her single cow does not produce much milk to cater for her family needs. With a Kiva loan, Lucy will buy another high breed dairy cow that will increase her milk production.

She sells her milk and manure to her neighbors which brings some extra income. Her profit will go to paying her loan and saving to buy another dairy cow. This is Lucy's first loan.
Her dream is to have two dairy cows that produce at least forty liters of milk per day.


This loan is special because:

It finances smallholder farmers to purchase supplies and agricultural equipment.
