Brendan lives in the Nkubu area of Eastern Kenya, a very fertile ground for agriculture, located on the slopes of Mt. Kenya. He is married and has four children. He has practiced farming for over 25 years. His primary source of income is producing cereals. He says that the loan will help him buy a water tank and pipes, which will help him store enough water for his farm and thus facilitate more crop production. In five years, he intends to have his own store. The major challenges he faces are crop pests and diseases, and insufficient funds. This loan will improve his living standards. He appreciates Juhudi’s quick loan processing.
