Timothy is 31 years old and single. He is a farmer from the town of Murang'a in central Kenya. He has been in the farming business for three years and employs one farm hand. His farm produces maize, beans, and chickens, which he sells locally. He solely depends on the income from his farm to cater for his needs. His biggest challenge has been the lack of a stable market for his products.

He has requested this loan through Juhudi Kilimo of 50,000 KES to expand his rabbit and poultry farming. He says that these projects will increase his income and enable him to start a family. In the future, he would like to do intensive dairy farming by acquiring at least five dairy cows and expanding his poultry business to enable him to sell at least 500 chickens every month. He encourages Juhudi to continue with its good work.
