A loan of $500 helped to buy a dairy cow.


Teresa's story

Teresa is a mother of 7 children with the last three being of school going age. She is 47 and has been in farming for six consecutive years since she took it up as her core business. Her farm currently produces milk and vegetables.

Teresa has requested a third loan of 41,200 KES from Juhudi Kilimo to help her buy a third cow for her dairy business. She says Juhudi Kilimo loans have been of great help since she has realized farming too can be a lucrative business. She adds that life has been more bearable with Juhudi Kilimo loans since she manages to repay her loans and meet her daily basic family needs. She remains optimistic she will become a major supplier of dairy products for the local market.

Teresa notes however that dairy diseases are the major challenge in farming.
