A loan of $475 helped to purchase a dairy cow.

Rebecca's story

Hello, world! Meet Rebecca from Kisii, an area of Kenya with constant rainfall throughout the year. The mother of three has been a farmer for 21 years! She keeps poultry and dairy cattle for eggs, meat, and milk. It is on the same small plot of land that she grows tea and bananas. She makes a living selling produce from her farm to the local market.

Rebecca is seeking a loan to purchase a dairy cow. Compared to items from other sectors, promotion of milk is very easy. There is no need for unique stores and costs of promotion are very low for any dairy. "The only way to grow as a dairy farmer is by producing more milk through improved management, improved cattle breeds, and purchasing more cattle," said Rebecca. Tending to animals is what she stated to be the most enjoyable thing about her business. "Keeping animals is like having different type of babies. They need all the attention they can get if you want them to be productive," she said.

Poor roads and lack of market are big challenges to farmers from Kisii like Rebecca. She also finds her children's high school fees prohibitive to business expansion. With your loan, Rebecca will increase her income and improve her family's standard of living.
