David K., 43, is married with five school-aged children who all attend school. He is a farmer from Kitale town in western Kenya where he has been farming for eighteen years. His mixed farm produces milk, maize, beans and vegetables that are all sold in the local market. He mainly depends on the income from his farm to cater to the needs of his family.

He has requested a loan of 51,600 KES through Kiva’s partner Juhudi Kilimo to purchase and insure a quality dairy cow that will increase his milk production. The extra income from this loan will help improve his family's living conditions.
