Michael is now requesting a loan of 83,200 KES from Juhudi Kilimo to buy and insure two dairy cows. He says the income from the cows will help boost his farming income which he will use to pay school fees for his children.
While lamenting the frequent fluctuations in milk prices, Michael is glad to have joined Juhudi Kilimo for its loan services, and focuses on timely repayment of the loan and hopes to acquire larger amounts in the future.
