A loan of $325 helped to purchase and insure a dairy cow..


Charles's story

Charles is a dairy farmer from the town of Litein in Rift Valley Kenya. He has been in the dairy business for two years now and employs one farmhand. He sells his milk to the local market.

He has requested a loan of 25,000KES through Kiva partner, Juhudi Kilimo to purchase and insure a dairy cow. The extra income from this loan will enable him to meet the basic needs of his family. In future, he would like to buy land and plant more pasture and also improve the quality of his dairy cows. He faces the challenge of poor infrastructure and lack of enough animal feeds.

Charles is 21 years old and married with one child who is two years old now.
