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

Phidah's story

Phidah is a resident and a farmer in Kitale where she lives with her husband and children. She has been involved in farming activities for 22 years. Currently, Phidah supplies mainly the local market with maize, milk and poultry products which provide her with income for her family's upkeep.

Phidah has made a loan request amounting to 41,600 KES from Kiva partner, Juhudi Kilimo, to help her to buy and insure a dairy cow. She says the additional dairy income will help boost her agricultural business within the local market as well as easing her efforts to provide for her family's basic needs.

Phidah notes that farming business challenges are mainly animal diseases, inadequate rains and the high cost of farm inputs. However, she is confident that she will be able to improve her family's living standards through farming.
