Junither's story

Hello Kiva lenders! Meet Junither, a 27-year-old mother who is very hardworking, ambitious and self-motivated. She lives in the Siongiroi area of Kenya - a very remote place - but blessed with beautiful weather patterns and climate. This area is very green, making it beautiful and a place you will stay. Junither is married and has three beautiful children who she always refers to as "her pride” because they are a source of joy to her. That is why she is keen on letting them have a brighter future and a comfortable life.

Junither practices mixed farming - that is, crop and animal farming - and has been doing that for the past ten years. She has all the farming techniques at her finger tips. Junither's heart is in dairy farming as she is passionate about dairy farming and has even nicknamed one of her cows 'Keroi'. There is so much demand for milk in the Siongiroi area, but the supply is low. To meet the demand, Junither plans to increase her milk production by buying a dairy cow. She is faced with financial challenges, but knowing that partners such as Juhudi Kilimo (via Kiva) are there makes her feel relieved and she knows her dreams will be achieved.

Junither expressed that “in five years, I want to make more money for myself and my family." With this loan, Junither is well on her way to achieving this dream. Junither also wishes to have more consistent income so that she can buy more dairy cows and be self-sufficient.
