A loan of $550 helped to purchase and insure a dairy cow.

Bernard's story

Bernard is 27 years old, married, and has one child, age 3. He has been practicing mixed farming for the last 4 years in Nyamira town, in western Kenya. His main products are tea, which he sells through the Kenya Tea Development Authority, as well as eggs and milk, which are sold locally. He also owns a shop in the same region.

Bernard has requested a loan of 45,000 KES through Juhudi Kilimo to purchase and insure a dairy cow. He says that the income from this loan will be saved for his son's school fees and will also improve his family's livelihood. His major challenges have been a lack of ready markets for his products and lack of enough capital to expand his farm.
