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


Sibia's story

Sibia has a mixed farm in Nyamira town in western Kenya that procudes tea, milk, and vegetables. She has been in the farming business for twenty years and employs 5 farmhands. She also earns income from the sale of cereals to the local market. Her biggest challenge in this business has been the lack of organized markets for her products.

She has requested a loan of 45,000KES through Kiva partner Juhudi Kilimo to purchase and insure a dairy cow. The proceeds from this loan will be used to improve her farm and pay school fees for her children. In the future, she would like to improve her tea plantation and own at least 5 dairy cows.

Sibia is 40 years old and married with 5 children between the ages of 17 and 20. Three of the children are currently attending school.
