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

Consolata's story

Consolata is a farmer from Kisii town in western Kenya. She has been farming for the last 5 years and employs three farmhands. Her mixed farm produces maize, beans and milk which are sold locally. She also earns income from her lumbering business in the same location.

Consolata is 39 years old. She is married with 6 school-aged children. All the children attend school.

She successfully repaid her previous loan of 45,000KES from Juhudi Kilimo and has requested this loan of 70,000KES to purchase a dairy cow. She says that this loan will help her purchase a quality dairy cow that will increase her milk production and earn her more income. The extra income from this loan will go towards the education of her children. She plans to expand her dairy farming in the future by acquiring at least 4 dairy cows. She also plans to expand her cereals business and build a large cereal store in future. Her primary challenges are lack of enough finance to purchase farm inputs like fertilizers and animal feed and poor road infrastructure in the area.
