A loan of $625 helped to buy more goats for rearing.


James Ogutu's story

James O. is a single 28-year old livestock farmer in the Kibos area located on the outskirts of Kisumu City, along the shores of Lake Victoria.

James rears goats for sale to butcheries in the city of Kisumu, and also for their milk, which is loved by many in the area because of its high quality. He enjoys working on his goat farm, which he has managed for the last three years with success. He makes a monthly income of 28,000 Kenyan shillings (Kshs) which he uses to support his siblings.

He is requesting a third loan of 50,000 Kshs, which he will use to buy more goats as a way to expand his business and increase his portfolio. James will use the profits to further his education so that he can gather skills to manage his business. Specifically, he hopes to attain some educational levels in agriculture because this will give him new ideas and skills to manage the goat business.

He hopes that a Kiva lender will help him attain his dreams and desires.
