Ezekiah's story

Kiva Lenders! Meet Ezekiah, a 31-year old hardworking, very ambitious and enterprising farmer from Eldoret, Kenya, which is home to the best marathon and Olympic runners who have broken world records. He is a proud father of three lovely children that he really loves and treasures. Ezekiah has been farming for the past seven years, however, he is more interested with dairy farming and he loves his dairy cow and has even nicknamed his animal “Jesimat." Through profits from dairy farming he has been able to take care of his family and pay tuition fees for his school going children. Ezekiah is very appreciative of the fact that milk prices in Eldoret region are high and this enables him to enjoy a good profit margin. Although he has been making profits, he has a challenge of feeding his cows. This is why he is seeking a loan to buy a chuff cutter. This will assist in cutting hay into smaller pieces, aiding in digestion and preventing animals from rejecting any part of their food. Through the loan Ezekiah will be assured of a maximum production of milk from his cows and therefore increased profits. Ezekiah believes that the key to increased milk production is proper food and through the loan he will be assured of that.

Ezekiah plans to save more and buy more dairy cows so as to satisfy the client base and market that is already in his area.
