A loan of $750 helped to buy and insure a dairy cow.

Geoffrey's story

Geoffrey is a resident of Kitale in Western Kenya, a region known for being the grain basket for the country. He is aged thirty-seven years and has been in active farming for seven successive years, milk, poultry and maize being his main produce for the local market.

Geoffrey has requested a loan of 62,400 KES from Kiva partner Juhudi Kilimo to help him buy and insure a dairy cow. He says this additional dairy cow will help boost his farming income hence improve his family's living standards as well. He plans to establish a cereals processing business in the local market to supplement his farming income.

He notes animal diseases and lack of adequate finances as the main challenges in the farming business.
