A loan of $450 helped to purchase and insure a dairy cow.


Wilter's story

Wilter is 45 years old. She is married with five children, ages 18 to 30 years old. Two of the children are attending school.

She is a farmer from Kisii town in Western Kenya where she has been farming for 15 years. Her products are milk, maize and tea which she sells to the local market and Kenya Tea Development Authority. She also buys and sells maize at the local market. Her main challenges are the poor transport network and lack of finances to do business at a higher level.

She has requested this loan from Juhudi Kilimo for 35,000 KES to purchase and insure a dairy cow. Through this loan she will be able to acquire a dairy cow that will increase her security and this will enable her access to bigger loans in the future. The extra income from this loan will enable her to educate and feed her family.

She is grateful to Kiva and Juhudi Kilimo for their loan and hopes to get more support in the future.
