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

George's story

George, 51, is a farmer in Nyamira town in Western Kenya. He is married with seven children between 3 and 22 years old. Five of the children are still in school. His mixed farm produces tea, which he sells through Kenya Tea Development Authority and beans, onions and milk, which are sold to the local market. He also relies on his pension pay to cater to the basic needs of his family.

He has requested a loan of 45,000 KES from Juhudi Kilimo to purchase and insure a dairy cow. He hopes the income from the dairy project will cater to the education of the children still in school. He is focusing on acquiring more acreage to expand his farm and requesting more loans in the future.

He, however, laments that the markets are not offering good prices and pests and diseases are a great challenge to business.
