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


Rael's story

Rael is a resident of Kitale in western Kenya. She has been in farming for 10 years, producing and selling maize, milk, and vegetables to the local market. She is married, with three children, aged between 1 and 12 years. She also runs a hotel in the local market.

Rael has requested a loan of 41,600 KES from Kiva partner Juhudi Kilimo to buy and insure a dairy cow. She is optimistic she will have enough milk both for her family and to sell for additional income to educate her children.

Rael says that animal diseases and price fluctuations in the local markets remain the major challenges.
