A loan of $375 helped to purchase and insure a dairy cow.


Zacharia's story

Zacharia, 30, is a dairy farmer from Kitale town in Western Kenya. He is married with four children aged between 2 and 7 years. He has been doing mixed farming for two years and selling his milk to the local market. He has employed one farmhand. He gets additional income from temporary employment in a local secondary school.

Zacharia has requested a loan of 31,200 KES from Juhudi Kilimo to purchase and insure a dairy cow. He says he will use the income generated from this loan to pay for the education of his children. He is also focusing on owning five dairy cows in the future.

Zacharia laments that animal feeds have become very expensive due to scarcity.
