Nkubu, Kenya / Dairy

A loan of $600 helped to buy and insure a dairy cow.


Mercy's story

Mercy is 31 and has been farming in Nkubu for four continuous years, producing maize, beans, potatoes, pawpaws, and peas, which she sells to the local market. She also runs a retail shop, in addition to farming. She is married with three children aged 9, 6, and 2 years.

Mercy has requested a loan of 52,500 KES from Juhudi Kilimo to buy and insure a dairy cow. She says she will use the farming income to repay the loan before saving to expand her shop and farming activities. She hopes to grow the business and educate her children with her farming income.

She laments the challenges of inadequate rainfall and rampant animal diseases.
