Joseph is 39 years old, married and has three children aged fifteen, eleven and five years. The children all go to school.

Joseph has been a farmer for the past ten years. He grows cereals and vegetables and then sells them in the local markets. He also trades in khat for additional income. Joseph says poor prices for farm products within the local markets remain a challenge.

Joseph has requested a loan of 35,000 KES from Juhudi Kilimo to buy pipe to set up an irrigation system on his farm. He says this will result in a big boost for his farm since water is the leading challenge in the area for farmers.
