Paul
Paul is a 41-year-old farmer living in Litein with his wife and 3 children, all of whom are of school-going age. He has been farming for 4 years. He produces and sells tea, milk and eggs. In farming, he loves mostly tea and dairy farming because they do well in Litein. The challenge he faces is unpredictable climatic conditions.

Paul chose Juhudi Kilimo for this loan because they offer friendly services to their customers and their loans are at a lower interest rate. Juhudi Kilimo helps farmers to manage their assets which adds more income to them. Through this loan, he will construct a greenhouse and thus have a variety of plants which will generate more income for him. This will improve his family's living standards and he will educate his children.
