Elias's story

Elias, 28, is a father of six who practices small-scale dairy farming in Igoji in the central region of Kenya. The area is popular for dairy and banana farming. He has 10 years of experience in farming. His primary income sources are milk, eggs and tea. He grows bananas too for making 'Matoke,' a sumptuous traditional delicacy made out of boiled bananas. Elias stated that he enjoys dairy farming most because it is the most profitable of all the farming activities. He would like to grow the business but he is experiencing financial constraints. Elias is seeking a loan to construct a cow barn. The housing structure will provide adequate bedding and enhance good milking hygiene. His biggest complaint is the cost of the building material. His highest monthly expense is farm inputs. Make a loan and help Elias improve the state of his dairy farm. He will make more income as a result and repay the loan with no difficulty. Profits from the investment will go to expansion of the business. You can help Elias with a loan and get him closer to achieving his dreams.
