Jenifer requested this loan through Juhudi Kilimo for Kes. 71,400 to purchase and insure a dairy cow. She will also use a portion of the money to improve the sleeping shed she built for her current livestock.
Jenifer says that with this loan she will have sufficient milk to become a supplier to the KCC - the Kenya Cooperative of Creameries. This will result in a more stable income which she will use to pay for her children's college fees and their basic needs.
Looking to the future, Jenifer hopes to build a modern grazing unit to ensure her animals are well taken care of. She feels this will help get maximum benefit out of her income-producing assets.
