A loan of $450 helped to buy artificial insemination containers for his farming business.


Tonui's story

Tonui is a farmer and a resident in his home area of Litein, South Rift Kenya where he also provides veterinary services to the local farmers. He has been in farming for five years and currently provides pineapple, tea, banana, and milk for the local market. He is married with two children aged three and four years. He is 31 years old.

Tonui has requested a loan of 40,000 KES from Juhudi Kilimo to help him purchase artificial insemination containers to help in providing artificial insemination services to other farmers in the area. He adds that this will help boost his farming income through reinvesting the income from his services in farming and raise the living standards of his family. He hopes to increase the number of dairy cows in his farming business.

He says unreliability of produce prices and high costs of feed has made farming difficult.
