A loan of $750 helped to purchase a dairy cow.

Patrick's story

Patrick is 52 years old. He is married and has been blessed with 4 children between the ages of 10 and 33. Three of the children are still attending school.

Patrick is a farmer from Litein town in Rift Valley, Kenya. He has been practising mixed farming for 22 years and has six employees. His products are pineapples, maize, tea, and milk which he sells locally. He also buys and re-sells cows at a profit.

His biggest challenge has been the high cost of farm inputs like fertilizers and chemicals which affects his produce and the inconsistent markets and pricing of his farm products.

Patrick has requested this loan from Juhudi Kilimo of 60,000 Kenyan shillings (KES) to purchase a dairy cow. He says that with this loan, he will have more disposable income through the sale of milk and this will improve the living standards of his family.

In the future, he would like to increase the quality of his dairy breeds and purchase a truck that will assist him in transportation. He would also like to access loans of higher amounts in the future.
