A loan of $825 helped to buy a dairy cow.


Alloys's story

Alloys has been in mixed farming for ten years in his rural home in Kisii where he produces and sells mainly maize and milk to the local market. He has employed one farmhand. He is married with five children aged between 15 and 3 years. He gets additional income from his employment as a subordinate staff person in a local school.

Alloys has requested a loan of 70,000 KES from Kiva partner Juhudi Kilimo to buy a dairy cow. He says this will improve his farming income and ease the education of the children and provision of the family's daily basic needs.

Alloys notes financial scarcity as the major challenge to many farmers including himself. He, however, remains optimistic his farming business will continue to grow.
