Richard's story

Hello! Meet Richard. He is a farmer who lives in the Litein area of Kenya on a small piece of land. He has been working on the land for the last 17 years! To afford a decent living for his four children, Richard sells milk and tea produced on his farm. To make extra money, he engages in other small personal businesses. Like many farmers in the region, Richard finds cow drenching quite enjoyable. His biggest challenge, however, is insecticides. Most of Richard's income goes to the high family-related expenses. Richard is seeking a loan to construct a cowshed. The shed will be easy to clean for hygiene purposes. Improving his animals' hygiene will avoid infections and poor health. Richard believes healthy animals are more productive thus his dairy activity will be more profitable. Your loan contribution will help Richard's family make more income and enjoy fresh milk as part of their daily diet.
