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

Samuel's story

Samuel, a 34-year-old married father of four children, three of whom are already in school, has been a farmer for four years in the Kitale area in Western Kenya. His farm produces milk, tomatoes, and sugarcane, all of which are sold to the local market. He relies fully on farming for his family's upkeep.

His first loan with Juhudi Kilimo promptly repaid, Samuel is requesting a new loan of 31,200 KES to purchase and insure a dairy cow. He says the milk produced will be consumed by the family as well as sold to provide for the other family basic needs including education for the children. He believes the loan will have a positive impact on the family.

Samuel says that the main challenge faced by dairy farmers is animal feed shortages during dry seasons.
