A loan of $500 helped purchase and insurance of a dairy cow.


John's story

John is 60 years old and has been doing mixed farming for 20 years in his hometown of Kisii in Western Kenya. His crops of tea, maize, and bananas are sold locally, with tea going mainly to Kenya Tea Development Authority. He has 7 children. Six are still in school.

John applied for this loan of 40,000 KES from Juhudi Kilimo to purchase and insure a dairy cow. He says the dairy cow will provide milk for family consumption as well as income. John’s plans include buying more dairy cows of better quality, and putting up a retail building. He does brick making for additional income.

Animal diseases and inadequate finances are the greatest threats to business.
