A loan helped To purchase irrigation equipment.
George is a farmer who lives with his family in Eldoret. He has been doing farming for 12 years. On his farm he has cows and poultry and he grows crops. He derives his income from the sale of milk, eggs and crops. Despite facing a challenge of dealing with pests and diseases that affect both crops and livestock, he loves dairy farming the most. George chose Juhudi Kilimo to finance him because it caters to the needs of small scale farmers like him. During Juhudi's microfinance training session, George said that he learned how to keep proper records. This loan will help him purchase irrigation equipment, which will ensure that there is a sufficient water supply to the crops and livestock and thus the output will increase. Therefore, there will be a sufficient food supply for his family and also for the market. George would like to grow as Juhudi helps him.
