A loan of $600 helped to purchase and insure a dairy cow.


Joan's story

Joan is 45 years old. She is married and has four children between the ages of 9 and 27. Two of her children are attending school.

Joan has been farming on the outskirts of Kitale town in Western Kenya for the last 20 years. Her main products are milk and maize, which she sells to Kenya Cooperative Creameries and the National Cereals Board respectively. She also earns income from bricks that she sells at the local market.

Joan has requested this loan of 46,800 Kenyan shillings from Juhudi Kilimo to purchase and insure a dairy cow. She says that this loan will improve her dairy farming, since it will increase her milk production, and earn her more income. Her biggest challenge has been lack of enough animal feed but, with training, she has been able to improve her breed.

Joan would like to supply her milk to a milk chilling plant in her village and purchase a deep freezer that will help her store her milk in the future. She is grateful to Juhudi for empowering her economically.
