A loan of $500 helped to buy and insure a dairy cow.


Elizabeth's story

Elizabeth has been a farmer in the Kitale area of western Kenya for three years, specializing mainly in vegetables and onions which she sells to the local market. She is married with four children aged between ten and seven years.



Elizabeth has requested a loan of 41,600 KES from Kiva partner Juhudi Kilimo to buy and insure a dairy cow. Farming is her only source of income, and she believes the acquisition of a dairy cow will help her meet her family's basic needs with ease. Her goal is to venture into poultry farming as well in future.


While Elizabeth notes that drought and animal diseases are inherent problems in farming, she is determined to succeed in the business despite these challenges.
