A loan of $600 helped to purchase and insure a dairy cow.


Philip's story

Philip has been practicing mixed farming for the last fifteen years in Litein town in Rift Valley Kenya. He sells his products of maize, beans and milk to the local market.

Philip is 35 and married with five children aged between two and 10 years. All the children attend school except the youngest.

He has requested a loan of 50,000 Kes through Kiva Partner, Juhudi Kilimo, to purchase and insure a dairy cow. The extra income from the sale of milk will enable him to pay school fees for his children and improve his family's livelihood. He faces the challenge of unpredictable weather conditions and lack of a stable market for his products.
