A loan of $1,000 helped to purchase a dairy cow.

William's story

William is 48 years old. He is married and has seven children with ages ranging between 2 and 14. All the children attend school. He is a farmer from the town of Litein in Rift Valley, Kenya. He has been farming for eight years and has employed one farmhand. His main products are milk and tea, which he sells to Kenya Cooperative Creameries and a local tea factory respectively.

William has requested this loan from Juhudi Kilimo of 80,000 Kenyan shillings to purchase a dairy cow. This being his third loan, he says that it will increase his milk production and earn him more income. He says that the extra income from this loan will help him pay school fees for his children and uplift their living standards.

William says that his major challenges have been diseases and an unreliable market for his products. He hopes, however, that in five years' time, he will have acquired more dairy cows and built a modern dairy unit.
