John
John, a 39-year-old farmer, lives in Kitale county, Kenya, with his wife and two children, both in school. He has been farming for the past nine years, producing milk, maize and eggs, which he sells at the local market.

John is requesting a loan of 31,200 KES from Juhudi Kilimo to buy and insure a dairy cow. The cow will provide him with more milk products and earn him extra income to help boost his living standards and to pay for his children’s education. John's major farming challenges are the lack of readily available markets, diseases and poor roads. He hopes to have three good quality dairy cows in the next five years.
