Anthony
Meet Anthony, a faithful Juhudi Kilimo customer, who took out a loan last year to purchase a dairy cow and repaid it successfully. He would like a second loan to purchase poultry. He wishes to expand his farm, where he produces and sells milk, and has crops such as maize and vegetables. He has farmed for 10 years. Anthony is married and has four children. He really enjoys what he does, especially planting food crops. The main challenge he faces in farming is the long rains which affect his crops. Anthony chose Juhudi Kilimo for this loan because they finance farming activities and also help farmers grow. He has also benefited from another Juhudi Kilimo loan. This loan will help him to pay his children's school fees and improve their living standards.
