A loan of $650 helped to buy a cow and make improvements to his butchery.

Erick's story

Erick B. is a 26-year-old married man living in the South Rift Valley of Kenya, near the town of Litein. He has two children, ages 5 and 7, and both are currently attending school.

He is pictured above at his butcher shop, but he's also been running a mixed farm for four years now. He earns his income selling the milk and tea produced on his farm, and from running his butcher shop in town. He is able to employ three people in the community. He says that lately the main challenges to his business are lack of clean water, insufficient feed for his livestock and poor marketing and pricing for milk.

Erick has a successful history with Juhudi Kilimo, previously completing a loan of 40,000 KES. He has now requested this loan for 50,000 KES to purchase a dairy cow (40,000) and to expand his butchery business (10,000). He says that with the added income he'll earn he can repay the loan and also care for his family's needs.

In the future, he hopes to improve his cows to pedigree level, producing 30 liters per day, and to add to his land. He thanks Juhudi Kilimo for having improved his living standards through loans, and he promises to repay loans well so as to get another one.
