Douglas lives in Nkubu, in the Meru region of Eastern Kenya. He is married and has three children. He has been in farming for over fifteen years, growing cash crops. He operates a retail business as an extra source of income.

Douglas approached Juhudi Kilimo for a loan of KES 40,000 in order to purchase irrigation equipment. This will help him in providing water efficiently for his crops and livestock for better production. He wants to be the leading farmer in the entire country.

His main challenges are lack of capital and poor markets.
