A loan helped to buy another dairy cow to improve her milk-vending business.

Mary's story

Mary, a 47-year-old mom of 5 school-going children, is a humble mother who wakes up every morning to work on her farm. She is fully dedicated to her work and thinks only of progressing. She is happily married and has a lovely family. Mary resides in the Kitale area of Kenya, a remote town with harsh living conditions because of the bad terrain in the region. However, it is favorable for dairy farming.

Mary’s primary sources of income are corn and milk sales from her cow. She has managed to take care of her family with her income from selling milk. Mary 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 a dairy cow to improve her milk-vending business.

The cow she intends to buy is a breed that produces rich, creamy milk. Her business will produce more milk, which will translate into more income. Demand for cow milk in the Kitale area is high, but the supply is low. So through this loan, Mary is going to have more milk to comfortably meet demand.

Mary's vision is to keep even more dairy cows so that she will be able to support her family.

This loan is special because:

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