A loan of $800 helped to purchase and insure a dairy cow.

Pauline's story

Pauline is 43 years old and married with seven children, between the ages of 7 and 25. Five of the children are still attending school. She is a farmer near Litein in the South Rift Valley of Kenya. She's been farming for about 20 years and employs two people. She earns her income selling pineapples, maize, bananas, milk, and tea. She says that the main challenge she faces to her business are fluctuating prices for farm produce, despite the constant or rising prices of farm inputs. She is hoping that improved breeds of cows will increase her overall milk production and that she'll find better markets for her farm produce.

She successfully repaid her first loan from Juhudi Kilimo and has requested a new loan through Juhudi to purchase and insure an added dairy cow. She says that the extra income from this loan will primarily help her pay for her children's school fees.
