Fighting for a better future? We need your help.

Creating a more equitable world takes a lot of time and energy, but at Kiva we’re in it for the long haul. 100% of money lent on Kiva goes to funding loans. That means we rely on donations from people like you to make this work possible. For a limited time, if you donate $35 or more, a $25 bonus will be added to your account (you’ll get an email once it’s there).

A loan of $375 helped to buy a dairy cow.

Paul's story

Paul is a farmer in western Kenya. He's 27 and has been running his dairy farm for 6 years. He employs one farm hand on his farm. Paul sells his milk to the local market. He also sells tea leaves, which he grows on his farm.

In the future, Paul hopes to improve his dairy-farming business by acquiring better breeds and more land from which to harvest feed.

When asked about business challenges, Paul cited a lack of knowledge about animal feed and diseases, as well as poor marketing and transportation networks to the market.

Paul is single, and he hopes to apply for additional loans in the future. He requests continued support from Juhudi and Kiva!
