Arthur
Arthur lives in the Muranga area of Central Kenya. He is married and has three children. He has practiced farming for 23 years. He produces and sells milk, tea, and a few crops. He loves farming as it acts as his main source of income, but his major challenge is brought about by insufficient funds.
Arthur chose Juhudi Kilimo to fund him and help him construct a dairy unit because they help small scale farmers to grow economically. During the training, he learned that microfinance institutions help farmers with small projects to grow. This loan will help him generate more income and thus provide for his family's needs.
