Wilfred's story

Wilfred is 50 years old. He is a farmer from Kisii town in Western Kenya. He is married and has 4 children between the age of 12 and 20. Three of the children are still attending school.

Wilfred has been farming for 30 years and has employed 2 farm-hands. His main products are maize, beans, bananas, and sorghum which he sells on the local market. He is also a carpenter and a timber merchant (pictured here in his shop). His major challenges in farming have been lack of an organised market for his products and lack of capital to expand his farming activities.

He has requested this loan from Juhudi Kilimo in the amount of KES.50,000 to expand his dairy unit and plant more nappier grass for his cows. He believes this loan will increase his milk production and earn him extra income that will help him educate his children and provide for their basic needs.

In future, he intends to improve his dairy herd by buying more cows of superior quality for higher production of milk. He recommends that Juhudi should increase the amounts of loans being issued.
