A loan of $775 helped to purchase and insure a dairy cow and to start a poultry project.

Evans's story

Evans, age 48, is married and has three children between the ages of 14 and 22. He is a farmer from the town of Kitale in western Kenya where he has been farming for 20 years. His main products are milk, maize, beans and sorghum, all of which are sold locally.

He has requested a loan of 61,600 KES from Juhudi Kilimo, a Kiva field partner, to purchase and insure a dairy cow and start a poultry project. The extra income from this loan will improve his family's livelihood and help him pay school fees for his children. Low market prices for milk and diseases have been his main challenges.
