A loan of $750 helped to purchase a dairy cow.

Kipkirui's story

Kipkirui is a farmer from the town of Litein in the Rift Valley of Kenya. He has been farming for 10 years and employs one farmhand. His mixed farm produces milk, tomatoes, cabbages and tea. He also earns income from his poultry farming and computer printing services.

Kipkirui is 38 years old. He is married and has been blessed with 3 children, ages 3, 9 and 14. All the children attend school. Kipkirui has requested this second loan of 60,000 KES from Juhudi Kilimo to purchase a dairy cow. He says that the extra income from this loan will enable him to pay his children's school fees, feed the family and assist other members of his family. He says that this loan will improve his family's living standards. However, he faces the challenge of lack of funds for expansion.

In the future, Kipkirui would like to build a decent zero grazing unit and increase the number of his dairy cows to three. He would also like to expand his poultry farming. He is grateful for the constant support in terms of loans and other beneficial information that are being extended to Juhudi Kilimo's clients.
