A loan of $925 helped to buy a dairy cow and poultry birds.


Julius's story

Julius has been in mixed farming for 20 years at his rural home in the Nkubu area, Kenya.

His farm produce of maize, wheat, milk, beans and eggs are sold to the local market. He is a widower with three children aged 22, 13 and 6 years old.

He retails in cereals to supplement his farming income in providing the family's basic needs.

Julius has requested a loan of 75,000 KES from Kiva partner Juhudi Kilimo to buy a dairy cow and poultry birds. His long term plan is to expand his cereals business with income from farming and provide better living standards for his children.

Julius's challenges are manpower costs, which are usually high, an undeveloped local market to support farmer’s efforts and climatic conditions.
