Andrew
Andrew has been in farming for seven years, within his rural home area, where he produces milk and eggs. He is married and has five children, two of whom are in schooling.

Andrew has requested a loan of 41,600 KES from Juhudi Kilimo to buy and insure a dairy cow. He says that this will be his second loan with Juhudi Kilimo. His first loan was for 31,200 KES. He adds that the experience he has earned for the business will help him with loan management.

He, however, notes that the major challenge in his business is lack of capital among smallholder farmers.
