Jackson
Jackson is a farmer who lives in Kisii, an area known for banana- and sugarcane-growing. He has practiced farming for four years, producing and selling milk, eggs, and bananas. He enjoys farming so much, because he gives his dairy cows the right treatment so they will produce more milk.

Jackson chose Juhudi Kilimo for this loan, because they will help him purchase a dairy cow that will produce more milk for him, and the interest rate on their loans is affordable for small-scale farmers. During the training he received from Juhudi Kilimo, he learned how to develop a savings culture. This loan will give him more milk, and thus more income, which in turn will improve his living standard.
