Nkubu, Kenya / Dairy

A loan of $525 helped to purchase and insure a dairy cow.


Faith's story

Faith has a mixed farm in the town of Nkubu in eastern Kenya that produces cabbages, potatoes, maize and peas. She has been in the farming business for 10 years and sells all her products locally. She is 32 years old and married with two children who both attend school.

She has made a loan request of 47,250 KES to purchase and insure a dairy cow. She hopes that this loan will enable her to acquire a quality dairy cow that will produce enough milk for domestic consumption and sale. The proceeds from this loan will help her improve her family's livelihood. She faces the challenge of the high cost of animal feed and disease, which affects her production. She plans to acquire two more dairy cows and construct a zero grazing unit in the next five years.
