Esther's story

Esther is 29 years old. She is married with 2 children, ages, 3½ and 5 years old. Both children are currently attending school. She is a farmer from Murang'a town in Central Kenya. Esther has been farming for 3 years and has employed one person from her community. Her products are maize, beans and milk which she sells on the local market. She also earns income from her rental houses in the same area. Her biggest challenge in farming has been the unstable market prices for her milk.

Esther has requested this loan from Juhudi Kilimo for 52,400 KES to purchase and insure a dairy cow and buy a solar lamp. This loan will increase her source of income from the sale of milk and reduce the cost of fuel and save time spent on looking for firewood.

In 5 years' time, she hopes to be producing over 40 litres of milk, up from the current 15 litres and own at least 3 dairy cows, up from the current one.

She says that through Juhudi loans she has been able to realise her dreams.
