A loan of $850 helped to buy a dairy cow.

Benard's story

Benard is 24 years old and conducts his farming activities in Kenya’s South Rift Valley. His farm produces poultry and milk. He also operates a tea retail business, sourcing tea from other farmers in the area and selling it to the processors and wholesalers in the local market.

Benard has requested a loan of 70,000 KES from Juhudi Kilimo to buy a dairy cow and grow his dairy business. He previously borrowed a first loan of 30,000 KES, which he promptly repaid. Benard adds that the loans help him improve his farming business and he expects growth to increase as a result.

He says the major challenge to farmers in the area is the lack of farming skills, which is a necessary requirement for farmers to mitigate the challenges inherent in the business of farming. He encourages Juhudi Kilimo to intensify its farmer training programs.
