Jackson, 58, is a dairy farmer from the town of Kitale in Western Kenya. He has been in the farming business for more than 10 years now. He sells his milk to a local cooling plant. He also earns income from his large-scale farming of maize.

He has requested this loan through Juhudi Kilimo of 41,600KES to purchase and insure a dairy cow. He says that the proceeds from this loan will help him pay school fees for his children. He says that his major challenge has been the poor road network. He hopes however to purchase a pick-up in the future to assist him in transporting his products to the market.

Jackson is a married father of three children who are now between the ages of 16 and 24. Two of the children are currently attending school. He comments that Juhudi's terms and conditions are convenient and good.
