Kisii, Kenya / Dairy

A loan of $875 helped to purchase a dairy cow.


Edward's story

Edward, from the town of Kisii in Western Kenya, is 34, married, and has three children between the ages of 2½ and 7. Two of the children attend school. Edward has had a mixed farm which produces maize, bananas and milk for the last five years, selling his products to the local market. He also earns income from his rental houses in the same area.

Edward has requested this loan of 70,000 Kenyan Shillings from Juhudi Kilimo to purchase a dairy cow and improve his cattle-selling business. He says this loan will help him acquire a quality dairy cow that will increase his milk production. He will therefore be able to provide enough milk for domestic consumption and earn enough income that will assist him in paying school fees for his children.

His biggest challenge has been the fluctuations in product prices that make it hard to budget. He is, however, grateful to Juhudi for taking the family from poverty and uplifting their living standards by giving them loans.
