Thomas is a sixty-year-old farmer in Kisii county, Kenya, where he lives with his wife and two children who are both in school. He has been dairy farming for the past seven years--he runs a sole proprietorship business as an additional source of income.

He is requesting a 62,400 KES loan from Juhudi Kilimo to buy and insure a dairy cow which will help in increasing his income from the milk he will sell and hence improve his standards of living and provide for the children’s school fees.

Financial constrains are his major challenge that he is facing.
