A loan of $750 helped to purchase and insure a dairy cow.

Sipora's story

From the town of Kitale in western Kenya, Sipora is a 58-year-old married mother of 11 children between the ages of 15 and 38, three of whom are currently attending school. She has been a farmer for 39 years, selling her milk, eggs, beans and vegetables to the local market.

Sipora has made a loan request of 62,400 Kes through Juhudi Kilimo to purchase and insure a dairy cow. The extra income from the sale of milk will help her provide for the basic needs of her family. She, however, will face the challenge of fluctuation in the market prices of milk and diseases which will affect her production. Sipora hopes to acquire at least three high-yield dairy cows in the next five years.
