A loan helped purchase and insure a dairy cow.

Job's story

Job is 37 years old, married, and has five children. He has been in farming for over ten years, producing maize, tea and tomatoes, which are all sold locally. He employs two farmhands. He also operates a retail shop to subsidize his farming. Job has requested a loan of 46,800 KES from Juhudi Kilimo to purchase and insure a dairy cow. He says the loan will help uplift his family's living standards. He is planning to get another loan after full repayment of the first one and buy more cows. Job says lack of capital and crop diseases are the challenges to farming.
