Kipkoech
Meet Kipkoech. He is a farmer who lives in Kericho with his wife and one child. He has been a farmer for three years; he sells milk and tea from his farm. Even though he says that farming is very expensive, especially for a young farmer like him, he really enjoys it. Kipkoech chose Juhudi Kilimo for this loan because they help farmers by providing the necessary training that will enable them to grow economically. This loan will help him purchase a chaff cutter, which will give his dairy cows a conducive environment to produce more milk and will increase his income, giving his family better living standards.
