A loan of $275 helped buy and insure a dairy cow.


Wilfred's story

Wilfred is a resident of and a farmer in the Kisii area in South Rift Kenya. He lives with his family of two children, and practices farming with the help of one farmhand. He produces a variety of vegetables and beet roots, which he sells to the local market.

Wilfred has made a loan request for 25,000 KES through Kiva partner Juhudi Kilimo to purchase and insure a dairy cow. He says the dairy cow's income will help him improve his family's living standards, educate his youngest child, and further expand his farm in the future.

Wilfred observes that the lack of organised markets is a challenge to farmers in the area.
