A loan helped to buy an additional dairy cow to improve her milking business.

Angeneta's story

Despite being a single mother, Angeneta is a humble farmer who wakes up every morning at 5am to work on her farm. She is fully dedicated to her work, and thinks only of progressing. She resides in the Vihiga, an area endowed with natural streams and green vegetation.

Angeneta’s primary sources of income are milk sales and a personal business she engages in to make ends meet. She has managed to take care of her family with her income from selling milk. Angeneta has always wanted to take care of another dairy cow, but a lack of capital has prevented her from doing so. She is now seeking a loan to buy an additional dairy cow to improve her milking business.

The cow she intends to buy is a breed that produces between 10-17 liters of milk a day, which will translate into more income. Demand for dairy milk in her area is high, but the supply is low. So, through this loan, Angeneta is going to have more milk and comfortably meet demand.

Angeneta's vision is to keep even more dairy cows so that she will be able to build a bio digester, which would help her to save more energy.

This loan is special because:

It finances smallholder farmers to purchase dairy cows, chickens, cereals, farm inputs and farming equipment.
