A loan of $300 helped to purchase and insure a dairy cow.

Edward's story

Edward resides in his hometown of Kisii, in South Rift Kenya with his family of four. His children are ages 5 and two and half years old. He is 28 years old himself. He has been farming for ten years and selling his produce of maize, beans, tea and milk locally. He earns additional income from the lumbering business.

Edward has made a first time request for a loan of Ksh 25,000 from Juhudi Kilimo to purchase and insure a dairy cow. He intends to use the income in better planning for his children's education and adds that the milk will improve the nutritional value of their meals and offer better health for their young children. He intends to acquire two more dairy cows in five years.

Edward says farmers, including himself, are not versed with knowledge on the handling of dairy cows and would appreciate training, especially on their diseases.
