A loan of $525 helped to purchase and insure a dairy cow.

Christopher's story

Christopher is 54 years old. He is married with four children, only one of whom attends school. He is a dairy farmer from Kitale town in western Kenya. He has been farming for over six years and employs two farmhands. His farm produces milk, which he sells to the local market. He also earns income from the sale of maize and bananas to the local market. His biggest challenge has been diseases, which are costly to treat.

Christopher has requested this loan of 41,600 KES from Kiva partner, Juhudi Kilimo, to purchase and insure a dairy cow. The proceeds from this loan will help him in paying school fees for his child at university. He will also be able to provide enough food for his family. In future, he would like to purchase a pick-up to assist him in transporting his farm produce to the market. He appreciates Juhudi's good will to assist small-scale farmers who have been shunned by the banks.
