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


David's story

David has been in farming in his rural home for over ten years. His farm produces maize, bananas, tomatoes, milk and passion fruits which he sells to the local market. He fully relies on farming income for the upkeep of his family of two children aged eight and two years.

David has made a fourth loan request with Kiva partner Juhudi Kilimo to buy and insure a dairy cow at 36,750 KES. He says this will improve his farming income and help him in improving the living standards of his family. He plans to buy a motorcycle to help in delivery of his produce to the market.

He appreciates Juhudi Kilimo help to smallholder farmers but adds that high costs of inputs still remains a challenge to farmers.
