Alex is a resident of Kisauni, Coast Province, Kenya, where he lives with his family and has been practicing dairy farming for five successive years.
Alex has requested a loan of 10,000 KES from Yehu to add to his savings so he can buy a dairy cow. He hopes to raise enough income from the dairy cow to construct a modern dairy unit in future. His focus is to make dairy farming his core business and hopes to generate enough income to educate his five children who are in school.
He notes that animal diseases are a great challenge in the business.
About Yehu Microfinance Trust
