With this loan of 42,000 Kenyan shillings, Jonathan intends to purchase and insure a dairy cow. He says that this loan will enable him to acquire a quality dairy cow that will produce enough milk for domestic consumption and sale.
His biggest challenges have been an inadequate supply of water and diseases which affect his production. Jonathan plans to expand his dairy farm in the future by acquiring at least five dairy cows and constructing a better zero-grazing unit.
