A loan of $450 helped to buy a water tank and irrigation pipes.

Silas's story

Silas is a farmer in Nkubu, Central Kenya, and he is 34 years old. He has been in farming for eight years and currently employs one farmhand with the income from his produce of peas, bananas, milk, maize, and beans that he sells to the local market. He runs a cereals shop to get additional income.

Silas has requested a loan of 40,000 KES from Juhudi Kilimo to purchase a water tank at 32,000 KES and irrigation pipes at 8,000 KES. He says the availability of water through the irrigation system will ensure a better and consistent income. He plans to boost his farming by buying two more dairy cows.

He laments the high costs of feed and inadequate rainfall as the major challenges in the farming business.
