The dairy industry in Kenya is a booming sector,  making up 7% of the 70 Billion USD GDP.

70% of Kenya’s milk is produced by 2 million smallholder dairy farmers earning only $2 USD per day. These smallholders are the key players of the dairy industry yet are the least profitable, producing only 30% of their cows' milk potential due to high cost of inputs, poor access to market, and poor management practices.

 
 

 90% of smallholders are in the  informal sector, 60% of which sell their milk to micro-entrepreneurs, i.e. dairy traders. The informal sector is fragmented, hindering both the growth and scalability.

 
 

Our approach transforms livelihoods.

We co-manage inputs, practices, and outputs for small dairy farmers. By partnering with dairy traders who use our business management mobile application we enable traders to sell our dairy feeds and unlock banking and credit solutions.

The data collected from daily milk collection paired with bi-weekly payouts builds credit and makes farmers bankable who have had no previous access to these types of institutions. Through our partnerships with traders, LishaBora can sell high-impact products and services that raise incomes of smallholder dairy farmers. LishaBora's success and the success of farmers and dairy traders are intrinsically connected.
