Wilson is a resident farmer in Nkubu, Central Kenya. He is married and has four adult children.

He is 53 and has been in farming for 30 years. His produce is bananas and sweet potatoes for the local market. He also works as a security guard at the local market.

Wilson has requested a loan of 63,000 KES from Juhudi Kilimo to buy and insure a dairy cow. He will use the additional profits to expand his farming by buying dairy goats, poultry and rabbits. He is worried, however, about rampant animal diseases.

He says the loan will bring benefit to his family by uplifting their living standards.
