Eliud is aged 35 and married with 3 children, two of whom are currently attending school. He has been practicing mixed farming for the last fifteen years in his hometown in western Kenya. His farm produces maize, beans, vegetables and eggs which are all sold locally. He earns additional income from his business of making and selling bricks locally. His primary challenges have been insufficient animal feed and diseases which affect his production.

Eliud has made a loan request of 62,400 KES in order to purchase and insure a dairy cow. He hopes that with the dairy cow, his family will be guaranteed enough milk for domestic consumption and sale. The proceeds from this project will help him support his family.
