Paul
Meet Paul, a farmer living in the Kitale area of North rift Kenya, an area where a lot of maize is grown. He is married and has 4 children. He loves farming and has been doing it for 14 years with his primary source of income being milk, eggs, maize, and a retail business. What he loves about farming is oxen ploughing, but his biggest challenge is looking after animals during bad weather especially dry seasons.

Paul chose Juhudi Kilimo because they are very quick in processing client loans and their terms of repayment are quite favorable. During the training, Paul learned more about asset financing. He says that this loan will be a source of income due to increased earnings. This will help him cater well to his family's needs.
