Sitienei, a resident of Litein, in South Rift Kenya, is a 38-year-old married father of four children ranging in age from eight years to eight months. He has been a dairy farmer for 15 years and is helped by one farmhand to produce milk which he sells to the local market. He gets additional income from his teaching employment.

Sitienei has requested a loan of 60,000 KES from Juhudi Kilimo to buy a dairy cow at 40,000 KES and construct a dairy unit with the remaining 20,000 KES. He says the farming income will help him improve his family's living standards. While lamenting the poor local markets, he thanks Juhudi Kilimo for offering grace periods in their loan services.
