Edith
Edith has a mixed farm that produces maize and beans that are all sold in the local market. She has been practicing mixed farming for the last two years in western Kenya. She also earns additional income from her cereals business in Kitale. Her major challenges have been poor weather conditions and fluctuating market prices for farm produce.


Edith has requested this loan of 31,200 KES through Juhudi Kilimo to purchase and insure a dairy cow. The extra income from this loan will help her meet the basic needs of her family.


Edith hopes to increase her farm acreage and acquire two more dairy cows in the next five years.
