Silas's story

Silas is a resident of Nkubu Town in North Rift, Kenya.He is married with four children, all adults. He has been in farming for over thirty years. His produce of french beans, carrots, cabbages, milk and potatoes is all sold locally.

He has requested this loan of 70,000 KES from Juhudi Kilimo to expand his horticultural farming. This is his second loan after the first one of 45,000 KES. He hopes the income will enable him to take care of his grandchildren and siblings. He aims to expand his horticultural farm through lease of farmland.

His major challenges are unreliable workforce and markets for the produce.
