John's story

John, 47, is a farmer from Gathihu which is located in Central Kenya. He has a wife and a 10 year-old son. John keeps dairy cattle and poultry and grows tea and other crops. His primary income sources are from selling milk, eggs, and tea. He also started a transportation service to move goods and passengers over short distances. John is seeking a loan to begin pig farming. With your loan, he is going to purchase pig feed, set up pig pens and purchase farm tools. This move will help John to diversify the products he is offering to the market. This will not only increase his income but also help him to mitigate product-specific risks. With more income, he can afford labor costs, which has been his biggest challenge. He will also use the extra money to meet high costs.
