A loan of $575 helped to purchase and insure a dairy cow.

Ronald's story

Ronald O. is 30 years old and married with two children, ages 3 and 5, who both attend school. He has a mixed farm that produces bananas, maize and beans, which are all sold to the local market. He has been in the farming business for four years and employs two farmhands. He also earns income from his hotel and tailoring businesses in the same region. His biggest challenges have been lack of enough farm inputs (such as fertilizer) and too much rain, which affects his production.

He has requested this loan of 45000 KES through Juhudi Kilimo to purchase and insure a dairy cow. He says that this dairy cow will improve his milk production and that his family will have enough milk for domestic consumption and sale. He is hopeful that his farming will expand in the future and that he will be able to sell his products wholesale.
