Justus has requested a loan of 45,000 KES from Juhudi Kilimo to purchase and insure a dairy cow. He plans to use the extra income from the sale of the milk to pay school fees. He is also focusing on acquiring more land and increasing the number of dairy cows he keeps to four.
Justus notes that pests and diseases are a great impediment to his farming business. However, he appreciates the loan services provided by Juhudi Kilimo.
