A loan of $350 helped to buy and insure a dairy cow.

Robert's story

Robert is a father of 4 between the ages of 13 and 9 years. He lives with his family in Kitale in Western Kenya where he has been carrying out farming for the last 7 years with his produce of maize, milk, eggs and beans supplied to the local market.

Robert has requested a loan of 31,200 KES from Kiva partner Juhudi Kilimo to buy as well as insure a dairy cow. He says this will help him produce more milk for family consumption and earn more income from the milk sales to meet other family basic needs.

He laments of the shortage of animal feeds and water in the area during the dry season, which compels farmers to spend much due to high costs.
