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

Zachary's story

Zachary O. is 35 years old and married with four children who are between the ages of 18 months and seven. Three of his children attend school. Zachary has a mixed farm in the town of Kisii in Western Kenya. He has been farming for fifteen years and employs one farmhand. His main products are eggs, milk, maize, beans and tea which he sells to both the local market and Kenya Tea Development Authority. He also operates a kiosk and a motorbike business in the same area.

Zachary has requested this loan from Juhudi Kilimo of 80,000 KES to purchase a dairy cow. The proceeds from this loan will go towards the education of his children and the expansion of his business. His biggest challenges have been competition, price fluctuations which make his income unstable and pests and diseases which affect production.

Zachary plans to open a hardware store in the future. He says that ever since he became associated with Juhudi Kilimo it has helped him grow, and he really appreciates it.
