Julius, 34, is a resident and a farmer in the Nkubu area of Central Kenya, where he carries out farming as well as a transport business. He is married with two children, ages 9 and 7. He has been in active farming for 10 years and currently sells beans, maize and wheat produced locally.

Julius has requested for a loan of 40,000 KES from Juhudi Kilimo to buy dairy goats. He says these goats will be able to provide him with milk during dry seasons. He says the loan will help him improve his farming by buying dairy cows in the future and provide income to educate his children.

He sees rampant drought as the main challenge to farmers.
