Martin R., 46 years old, is a father of five children, all attending school. He is a resident of Litein Town in Rift Valley, Kenya. He has operated a dairy for six years and sells the milk in the local market. The lack of availability of cow fodder is his main challenge.

Martin’s loan application of 60,000 KES from Juhudi Kilimo is his third after his first and second loans of 20,000 KES and 45,000 KES, respectively. He wants to buy and insure a dairy cow with this latest loan. He is optimistic he will have a dairy unit soon. The income generated from his dairy is intended for his children’s education.

He is glad to be able to work with Juhudi Kilimo on his loans.
