Hezekiah's story

Hezekiah hails from Kisii Town in Western Kenya. He is 67 and is married with 9 children, the majority are now adults. He has been in mixed farming for 20 years with his produce of coffee, maize, tea, sugarcane, bananas and milk sold locally and to established co-operative societies.

He has requested this loan of 45,000 KES from Juhudi Kilimo to purchase and maintain a dairy cow. He believes this will provide enough milk for the family and pay the education fees to educate children. He is also focusing on buying a vehicle in the next five years to help transport his produce to the market.

Hezekiah sees insecurity, low market prices and diseases as the greatest threats to the business.
