A loan of $475 helped to buy and insure a dairy cow.

Joel's story

Joel is 29 years old and married with four children between 1½ and 10 years old. Three of the children are attending school. Joel is practicing mixed farming in western Kenya near Litein town. He has been in this business for six years with only one employee. He sells his milk and tea to Kenya Tea Development Agency and the local market, respectively. He relies solely on this business to provide for his family.

He has requested this loan through Juhudi Kilimo for Kshs. 35,000 to purchase and insure a dairy cow. He believes that the income he will get from the sale of milk will enable him to pay fees and provide enough milk for his family. He says that the main challenge he is facing right now is lack of enough market for his milk. In the future, he hopes to acquire a hybrid cow, which can produce more than 30 liters a day.
