Mutai has requested a loan of 29,000 KES from Juhudi Kiimo in order to buy a chuff cutter which will improve his dairy animal feeding and significantly reduce costly wastage in feeds. Mutai plans to develop his farm into a zero-grazing system.
Mutai says drought and a lack of finances are farmers' main business challenges, but is glad Juhudi Kilimo is providing loans to small farmers.
Important InformationTo facilitate a partnership between Kiva and Juhudi Kilimo, K-Rep Group (Juhudi Kilimo’s 100% owner) has guaranteed Kiva funds in the event of institutional default. Lenders should be aware that the risk of borrower default remains borne by the lender.
