A loan of $1,175 helped to buy a generator and a water pump.


John's story

John is a resident of Muranga in Central Kenya where he has practiced mixed farming for over twelve years. He currently employs one farmhand and produces eggs, milk and other horticultural products. He is married with three children all of school-going ages.

John has requested a loan of 95,000 Kenyan Shillings (KES) from Juhudi Kilimo to buy a generator and a water pump for irrigation at his farm. He believes sufficient water at the farm will help him produce a variety of fruits and improve his income which will in turn enable him educate and feed his children.

He says intervention by Juhudi Kilimo with this loan is timely since inadequacy of funds and poor markets for the farm produce remain the leading challenges to farmers.
