John is age 66 and has been in farming for over 20 years. He currently produces milk and coffee for the local market with the help of one farmhand. He is married with 8 adult children.

John has made a second loan request with Juhudi Kilimo amounting to 60,000 KES to purchase a water tank. He says the tank will help provide water security for his dairy animals, in turn increasing his dairy output. He laments the persistent drought which limits farming output significantly and with much cost incurred in providing water for the animals.
