Julia's story

Julia is a resident of the Nkubu area in Central Kenya. She is aged 49 years and has been in the farming business for twenty years growing mainly maize and beans. She is married with four children, they are all adults. Her main farming produce and source of income has been maize but she is focusing on diversifying this.

Julia has requested a loan of 30,000 KES from Kiva partner Juhudi Kilimo to help her buy dairy goats. She says the venture into dairy farming will help improve her farming income. She reiterates that the loan will open ways for her to grow her farming business toward buying dairy cows in the future.

Julia mentions pests and diseases as the major challenges she faces but believes dairy goats are more resistant to drought and will help improve her living standards.

She says she chose Juhudi Kilimo since she believes it is the best micro finance institution.
