A loan of $625 helped to purchase and insure a dairy cow.


Soy's story

Soy, 38, is a dairy farmer from Litein town in Rift valley Kenya. He is married with four children who are between the ages of eight and sixteen years. All the children attend school. He has been practicing dairy farming for ten years now and employs one farmhand. He sells his milk to the local market and to a nearby tea estate.

He has requested a loan of 50,000KES through Kiva partner Juhudi Kilimo to purchase and insure a dairy cow. He says that this dairy cow will increase his security for future loans and increase his income through the sale of milk. He would like to buy land to plant more pasture in the next five years. His primary challenges are poor infrastructure, lack of enough animal feeds and lack of professional services like artificial insemination.
