Jackson has requested a loan of 31,200 KES from Juhudi Kilimo to buy and insure a dairy cow. He says the acquisition of a dairy cow will provide the family with milk for daily consumption as well as help pay for the children's education. He aspires to own a pick-up truck in order to venture into the transport business.
