A loan of $450 helped to purchase and insure a dairy cow.


Richard's story

Richard is age 33 and married with four school-age children who all attend school. He has been practicing mixed farming for the last eight years in his hometown in western Kenya. His mixed farm produces sugarcane, nappier grass and bananas which he sells locally. He is also a businessman.

With this loan of 40,000 KES, he intends to purchase and insure a quality dairy cow that will produce enough milk for domestic consumption and sale. The extra income from this loan will help him pay school fees for his children and improve his family's livelihood.

He faces the challenges of insufficient animal feeds and fluctuating weather conditions which affects his production.
