Davis
Davis is a jolly farmer living in the Kitale area of North Rift Kenya with his wife and two children, both of school going age. He has been farming for the past eight years with his primary income source being milk, crops, offering transportation services and a retail business. He enjoys farming because the income he gets in return is very good, but his biggest challenge is low prices on farm products and bad weather in some seasons.

Davis chose Juhudi Kilimo for this loan because they deal with small scale farmers by giving them agricultural solutions. During the training he learnt how this loan can help him in developing and improving their living standards. With this loan there will be increased milk production for consumption and for sale and also it will improve his family's living standards.
