Mathew's story

Mathew (pictured next to his fish ponds) is 65 years old. He is married and has 6 children between the ages of 24 and 39. Two of the children are attending school. He is a farmer from Kisii town in Western Kenya. He has been farming for over 30 years and has employed one farm-hand. His farm produces maize, tea, beans, bananas, milk, fish and nappier grass which he sells to the local market. He faces the challenge of the high prices of farm material, lack of enough feed for the fish and poor prices for his products.

Mathew has requested this loan from Juhudi Kilimo for KES.60,000 to purchase a dairy cow. He says that this loan will enable him to expand his dairy activities and earn him income that will help him pay school fees for his children in college.

In the future, he would like to expand his dairy business and supply his milk in wholesale to other retailers. He says that through Juhudi Kilimo, he has been able to grow and really appreciates the support.
