A loan of $625 helped to buy poultry birds and dairy goats.

Peter's story

Peter is a resident of Nkubu. He is married and has four children, all adults except for the last born who is still schooling. He has been in farming for more than 20 years. His farm currently produces milk, coffee and bananas, which he sells to the local markets. He earns additional income from his second-hand clothes sales.

Peter has requested a loan of 50,000 KES from Juhudi Kilimo. This will be his second loan after the first one of 25,000 KES. He says he will buy poultry birds at 30,000 KES and dairy goats at 20,000 KES. He says this loan will boost his income and enable him pay the school fees for his youngest son and improve the living standards of his family.

Peter's greatest challenges are the high input costs and unreliable rains, especially for banana cultivation, because they require farmers to incur additional costs in irrigation.
