A loan of $750 helped to buy a dairy cow.

Eliud's story

Eliud lives in the Kitale area of Kenya, which has high poultry production and consumption. He has three children and has been in his current line of work for 21 years. His primary income sources are milk, eggs and farm crops. He enjoys dairy farming and his biggest challenges are animal diseases and expensive animal feeds. He is seeking a loan from Juhudi Kilimo because it gives loans to farmers at a lower interest rate and also provides training on micro-finance. His highest monthly expense is school fees, and he plans to use the additional income he earns from this loan to pay for his children's education. He owns one cow, but does not have electricity, solar power, running water or other items such as a sewing machine, TV, DVD.

Note: To create this loan profile, Juhudi Kilimo used a mobile device to gather information in the field and send the data to a central online repository, thus reducing paper use, making the process more efficient and keeping costs down.
