A loan of $725 helped to purchase and insure a dairy cow.

David's story

David has a mixed farm in Litein town, in Rift Valley, Kenya. He has been farming for 20 years. His products include tea and milk, which he sells locally. He also earns some income from his motorcycle transport business in the same region (He is seen here, pictured with his motorcycle).

David is 41 years old and married. He has 5 school-aged children who all attend school.

David has made a loan request of KES60,000 through Kiva partner, Juhudi Kilimo, to purchase and insure a dairy cow. The extra income from the sale of milk will enable him pay his own school fees and also pay the school fees for his children. He would like to buy a chuff cutter (machine that removes corn husks) in the next 5 years to help him improve his dairy farming.
