He began farming and has been doing it passionately for 24 years. Through all those years he has been able to support his family financially. Eliud loves dairy farming a lot because Eldoret region has one of the best conditions that support dairy farming because of plenty of dairy food and fodder for dairy cows. He has nicknamed his cows “Maua and salat” which means flower. That is what the cows are to him. They are his flowers.

Because of good weather patterns, plenty of animal food and a ready market for milk products, Eliud is seeking a loan to buy another dairy cow. He believes that through the loan he will be able to improve his living conditions and be able to secure the future of his children.
Having gone through training with Juhudi kilimo he is confident that the skills he acquired will help him increase his business and be able to pay back the loan. Eliud is confident that if you invest in his dream you will be impacting the life of his family and also his children.
