A loan of $500 helped to purchase and insure a dairy cow.

Mutai's story

Mutai is a dairy farmer from Litein in Rift Valley, Kenya. He has been in the dairy business for 5 years and employs one farmhand. He sells his milk at the local market and a local tea estate. He also earns income from his small-scale farming of tea.

Mutai is 39 years old and married. His four school-aged children all attend school.

He has requested a loan of 40,000 KES from Juhudi Kilimo, a Kiva field partner, to purchase and insure a dairy cow. The extra income from this loan will help meet the basic needs of his family. He plans to acquire a high-yield dairy cow in the next five years. His major challenge has been lack of funds to expand his farming activities.
