Truphena's story

Wonderful Kiva Lenders! Meet Truphena, 47 years of age, a very hardworking woman, enterprising and a go-getter. She hails from the Nyamira area of Kenya, an area referred to as a “banana region.“ This is because all farmers grow bananas and their staple food is “matoke,” a mouthwatering delicacy prepared from bananas. Truphena has her secondary education, which she could not continue past because her parents could not support her, but that never killed the spirit in her to succeed in life and have a good life.

She started farming and has been doing it for the past 20 years. Through mixed farming (that is, crop and animal farming), she has been able to earn a decent income and also provide for her family.

Dairy farming is close to Truphena's heart and she really enjoys doing dairy farming with a lot of passion, but one challenge she is facing is lack of a proper dairy unit, so that is why she is kindly seeking funds to build a dairy unit. Through the loan, her cows will never be sick because they will have a good place to stay, and also bad weather conditions will never affect the cows. The dairy unit will boost milk production because when cows are more relaxed, they produce a lot of milk and that means improved income.

Truphena is very honest with finances and she projects that through saved profits, she will be able to buy another quality dairy cow within a year. Truphena notes down all the profits she makes and takes keen interest in all the income she gets. Earlier costs that were being incurred in buying medicine will not be there, hence she will have more income and assure her family a brighter future. Through your loan, Truphena will be able to be economically empowered and will have improved living conditions.
