A loan of $450 helped to purchase a dairy cow.

Kennedy's story

Kennedy is aged 31 and has been farming in the Kitale area of western Kenya for 10 years. He is married with two children aged 7 and 1. He does timber lumbering for additional income. His farm produces milk and timber for the local market.

Kennedy has requested a loan of 41,600 Kenyan shillings (KES) from Juhudi Kilimo to purchase and insure a dairy cow. He says the additional dairy income will boost his income and enable him to buy more farm implements and a power saw for the lumbering business.

Kennedy sees the lack of business funds and animal diseases as the greatest threats to his farming business.
