A loan of $475 helped to buy goats to sell.


Peninah's story

Peninah is married and lives in Samburu with her husband. Peninah's business is selling goats for meat at the market to butcher shop operators. She started her business five years ago with a small amount of capital. She started buying goats to raise in her yard, fattening them and selling them. She is supported in this business by her husband.

Peninah's business has gradually grown, and now her main customers are not only neighbors, but also restaurants and businesses that sell special meals. This helps her business' growth, as they always refer new buyers to her. Peninah's main challenge is having enough working capital to buy more goats to sell to increase her income. For this reason, she is requesting a Kiva loan to buy goats to sell. This will help increase her income, which her family depends upon.
