Kipngetich
Meet Kipngetich, a father of one from Kericho, Kenya. Kipngetich has been a mixed farmer for the last six years. He makes ends meet by selling milk, eggs, and tea produced from his farm. Generating income for the family is his greatest motivator. However, disease outbreaks are his biggest challenge.

He is passionate about dairy farming: He named his dairy cow Seroi. To pull himself out of poverty, he mobilized a group of farmers and got them to join groups. The groups that joined Juhudi Kilimo were trained and introduced to loans.

Kipngetich is seeking a loan to construct a dairy unit. He has future plans of introducing zero grazing to improve milk production in his farm. With your loan, Kipngetich will improve the state of his dairy farm. This only serves to generate more money that will go to improving his family's livelihood.
