Samwel
Samwel is a 34 year old farmer living in Kitale with his wife and 5 school-aged children. He has farmed for 15 years to produce and sell milk, maize, and vegetables in the local market. He also has a motorbike and offers transportation services to the local people. This helps him to earn some extra income.

He expressed the joy that he gets from farming and the income earned from his hard work on the farm. His greatest challenge is how to deal with the pests and diseases that affect his crops and livestock.

Samwel chose Juhudi Kilimo for this loan because it helps small scale farmers to increase their income and receive a lot of training before they are given loans.

This loan will help him earn more income which he will use to educate his children and improve his family's standard of living.
