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

Beatrice's story

Beatrice is a married mother of four children who all attend school. She is a farmer from the town of Kitale in western Kenya where she has been farming for seven years. Her mixed farm produces maize, bananas, vegetables, milk and sweet potatoes, which are all sold locally. She is also a teacher at a nearby local school.

Beatrice has requested this loan of 52,000 KES through Kiva partner Juhudi Kilimo to purchase and insure a dairy cow. The extra income from the sale of milk will help boost her family's living standards. She hopes to own a pick-up for transporting milk in the next five years.
