A loan of $425 helped to buy and insure a dairy cow.

Paul's story

Paul is 70 years old and married with eight children, aged 14 to 47 years. Four of the children, including two grandchildren, are currently attending school. Paul is a farmer in western Kenya, near the town of Kitale. He has been farming for 46 years and has one employee. His main produce is maize, beans, watermelons, and cabbages, which he sells to the local market. Paul depends mainly on farming to educate the family and meet their needs.

He has requested this loan from Juhudi Kilimo for 31,200 KES to buy and insure a dairy cow. He says that the income from this loan will help him meet the essential needs of his family, which are good health and education. His biggest challenge is the unpredictable weather conditions that affect his produce, and diseases like East Coast Rever that livestock are prone to in the area. In five years' time he would like to acquire more than 10 quality dairy cows.

He requests that "Juhudi Kilimo continue supporting the common man and maybe diversify its products to education loans."
