A loan helped to buy another dairy cow to improve milk production and make more profits.


Lilian's story

Lilian is a 41-year-old single mother of two children. She lives in Sotik, a town that hosts elite Kenyan athletes. She is a mixed dairy and crop farmer who has farmed for the past five years, enabling her to comfortably support her family. Dairy farming is one of the most profitable business ventures in her remote village.

Lilian is taking this loan to buy another dairy cow to improve milk production and make more profits. Juhudi Kilimo’s partnership with Kiva is an effective tool for reducing poverty in Kenya and especially among women, the central actors in the rural areas. She is hopeful that Kiva lenders will respond positively to her loan request.


This loan is special because:

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