A loan of $725 helped to purchase a dairy cow.


Abel's story

Meet Abel, a mixed farmer with eight years of experience in the field. He lives in Kisii, which neighbours Maasai land, together with his wife and two children.

Abel sells milk and eggs produced by his cattle and hens to the locals at the market. He and his children enjoy milking together as a family every morning before the children head to school. Pests and disease seem to be a common problem among farmers in the region.

Abel is seeking a Kiva loan to purchase a dairy cow. A huge chunk of Abel’s income has always been used for business-related expenses, leaving a very small sum for his family. He believes, by sacrificing more capital into the business, he will yield a higher income in the future, which will go toward improving his family's living standards.
