A loan of $900 helped to purchase a dairy cow.


Isaac's story

Isaac is 58 years old, married, and has 5 children aged 24-32, one of whom is still attending school. He is a farmer from Kisii town in Western Kenya. He is also a retired teacher, and is still enjoying the benefits of his pension. For the past 11 years, Isaac has been producing maize, beans, bananas and milk, which he sells to the local market. His main challenges in farming are the unpredictable weather conditions, lack of enough water and proper veterinary services.

Isaac has requested a loan of KES 70,000 from Juhudi Kilimo to purchase a dairy cow. The income generated by this loan will enable him to better provide for his family and educate his child who is still in school. In the future, he hopes to expand his farming activities by purchasing 2 more dairy cows and increasing his cereal stocks.

He appreciates the help given and appeals for more funds to boost production.
