A loan of $750 helped to buy and insure a dairy cow.

Emily's story

Emily is a farmer in Kitale, Western Kenya, and has been practicing maize farming for eight solid years. Emily says her family of four school-going children fully relies on her farming income for their daily meals and education.

Emily has requested a loan of 62,400 KES from Juhudi Kilimo to commence dairy farming by buying and insuring a dairy cow. She wants to diversify her farming business to spread the risks due to challenges of the cereals industry, especially the government, which is the recipient of a majority of maize farmers' supply. She adds that she will soon be keeping poultry as well.

Emily notes the poor road networks and high cost of feeds are among the challenges she faces.
