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

John's story

John has lived more than half of his life in farming to support his family in Kisii Town, in South Rift, Kenya. At age 52 now, he has been in mixed farming for 30 years producing maize, bananas and tea, and selling all the produce locally. He has employed two farmhands in the farm. He is married with six children between the ages of 22 and 16 years old.

John is seeking a loan of 45,000 KES from Juhudi Kilimo to purchase a dairy cow. He says the loan will help him diversify and expand his businesses. He believes the dairy venture will give sufficient nutrients to the family, and ensure consistency in income generated which will be a resource for educating his children.

John is urging financial institutions, and more specifically Juhudi Kilimo, to continue with their support for farmers.
