He has requested this loan from Juhudi Kilimo for 31,200 KES to buy and insure a dairy cow. He says that the income from this loan will help him meet the essential needs of his family, which are good health and education. His biggest challenge is the unpredictable weather conditions that affect his produce, and diseases like East Coast Rever that livestock are prone to in the area. In five years' time he would like to acquire more than 10 quality dairy cows.
He requests that "Juhudi Kilimo continue supporting the common man and maybe diversify its products to education loans."
