A loan of $400 helped to purchase and insure a dairy cow.

Benson's story

24-year-old Benson is a farmer from Western Kenya near Kitale town. He is married and has two children aged 9 months and 3 years.

Benson has been farming for three years and sells his maize, bananas and vegetables to the local market. He also operates a mini-bakery in the area. His main challenge in farming is bad weather and poor milk prices.

Benson has requested this KES 31,200 loan from Juhudi Kilimo to purchase and insure a dairy cow. The extra income from this loan will enable him to meet his family’s needs.

In future, Benson would like to expand his farm from the current one acre to five acres in order to accommodate four quality dairy animals that he aspires to have.

Benson hopes that Juhudi will exist forever so that the rural people can continue to benefit.
