Meet Luke a farmer living in Ndaragwa area in Central Kenya. He has done farming for 2 years selling milk, eggs, and crops. He loves farming and he focuses mostly on dairy farming, but his major challenge is controlling animal diseases.

Luke said that he chose Juhudi Kilimo for this loan because they offer training to their farmers before giving them loans. During the training he learnt that as a small scale farmer, he has to develop a lifestyle of saving. This loan will enable him purchase a dairy cow which will bring in more profit and thus improve his family's lifestyle.
