Mary's story

Mary is a farmer in Litein area, South Rift Kenya. She has been in farming for 10 years and emloys one farmhand. Her farm produces milk and tea, which she sells to the local market. She is married and has 2 children, one of whom is still schooling. Mary has requested for a loan of 50,000 KES from Juhudi Kilimo. This, being her second loan, will be used to purchase a dairy cow. She says the venture in dairy farming has helped her. She is focusing on increasing the number of her dairy cows consistently over the years. Mary points out that there is need to give farmers training all the time, since lack of knowledge seems to be their main undoing.
