Zachary has requested this loan from Juhudi Kilimo of 80,000 KES to purchase a dairy cow. The proceeds from this loan will go towards the education of his children and the expansion of his business. His biggest challenges have been competition, price fluctuations which make his income unstable and pests and diseases which affect production.
Zachary plans to open a hardware store in the future. He says that ever since he became associated with Juhudi Kilimo it has helped him grow, and he really appreciates it.
