A loan of $575 helped to purchase and insure a dairy cow.


Teresia's story

Teresia, 45, is a farmer from the town of Nyamira in western Kenya. She is married and has been blessed with 5 children, who are now all adults. She has been in the farming business for 20 years and sells her products locally. She is also employed as a teacher in the same location.

Teresia has requested a loan of 45,000 KES through Kiva's partner, Juhudi Kilimo, to purchase and insure a dairy cow. The profits from this loan will help her improve her family's livelihood. She hopes to acquire 5 more dairy cows in the next 5 years, which will improve her milk production.
