A loan of $400 helped to buy and insure a dairy cow.


Florence's story

Florence is a farmer in Kitale and the mother of two children, aged 12 and 14 years. She has been farming for ten years, producing maize, beans and vegetables which provide income to meet the family's daily needs. Florence has requested a loan of 31,200 KES from Kiva partner Juhudi Kilimo to buy and insure a dairy cow. She hopes to grow her farm to three hybrid dairy cows and venture into the transport business, which will also help improve her dairy business. Florence is, however, weary of the challenges posed by diseases and drought.
