John
Meet 46-year-old John, who lives in Kitale, where he has been practicing farming for seven years.

He does dairy, poultry, and crop farming, which is his actual source of income. He enjoys doing farming and more especially dairy farming, while his major challenge is getting feed for his livestock.

John said that he chose Juhudi Kilimo for this loan because they offer good products that suit low-income earners.

This loan will help John purchase a dairy cow, which will increase his milk production and thus improve his income base. This will enable him to give his family a better life and grow his businesses.
