A loan of $925 helped to buy a dairy cow.

Anthony's story

A young dairy farmer from Chebwagan in the South Rift Valley of Kenya, Anthony is aged 28. He is married and blessed with two young children. He previously took a loan for Kes. 45,000 from 'Juhudi Kilimo' and repaid it on time. He now wants to improve his milk production by acquiring an extra quality cow with this new loan for Kes. 70,000.

Anthony has been farming for three years and sells his milk to Kenya Cooperative Creameries. He also earns income from a small retail shop and a motorbike taxi business. He says that the main challenges to his business are a lack of capital and of knowledge of high-yield dairy farming, both of which he is now receiving from Juhudi. In the future, he hopes to improve his farm by building a modern dairy unit to accommodate five cows, producing up to 70 litres of milk every day.

Juhudi is changing the way farmers do business.
