James
Meet 51-year-old James, a farmer who hails from Kisii. He is married and has five children. He has been doing farming for 17 years; he produces and sells milk, eggs, tea and bananas. Farming is very important to him as it is his main source of income. Though he gets a lot of produce from the field, he faces a challenge of transporting it to the market because of the poor roads and lack of a good market.

James chose Juhudi Kilimo because they meet the needs of the small farm holders, and their loans are at a low interest rate. This loan is for purchasing a dairy cow, which in turn will bring in more income. This will improve his family's living standards.
