Ronald's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped to purchase and insure a dairy cow.
Ronald is a farmer in the Kisii area of Kenya, South Rift region. He has been in mixed farming for thirteen years and is married with four children between the ages of 10 years and 8 months. His farm produces tea, bananas, maize, beans, and trees, which he sells locally. He uses the services of two farmhands. Ronald is also employed as a teacher. Ronald has requested a loan of 30,000 KES from Juhudi Kilimo to acquire as well as insure a dairy cow. He says the dairy business will provide nutritional value for the family and he also plans on saving for the future education of his children. He is focusing on adding four more cows in five years. Ronald lists the poor road system and animal diseases among the greatest challenges. He adds that Juhudi Kilimo's loans have had great impact on the living standards in the area.
