Jones from Eldoret, Kenya

Single mother and farmer in Kenya. A cow will enable me to support my family.

I need a cow to better provide for my family of 6. I'll be able to feed my children and sell milk in order to keep them growing up healthy!

My need and situation

I am a 33-year-old Kenyan woman, and the sole provider for my 3 children and 2 nephews. I am a farmer. I have maize, cashew nuts and chickens. I am a fistula survivor and recently went though a 6-month vocational training program.

My goals are to add a cow to my farm to enable me to better assist my family.

I need to purchase a cow as well as feed. Having milk with greatly assist in providing good nutrition for my children and the income from the milk I can sell will assist me in caring for my family!

Meeting this need will help me very much, because being the only provider for my large family, I need to feed them and also earn money to help them move ahead in school and life. I desire to be able to pay school fees so they can continue their education.
