Joseph is aged seventy years and has been in farming for twenty-seven years with his farm currently producing and selling milk and horticultural products to the local market.

Joseph has requested a loan of 100,000 KES from Juhudi Kilimo to buy a milling machine in the local market. He says he will install grain processing equipment for use in the local area and hopes to increase his income. This is his second loan with Juhudi after the first one of 60,000 KES which he used to set up an aggro-vet shop which has helped him in treating his dairy animals and generating income to meet family needs.

Joseph says sourcing for capital remains the major challenge to smallholder farmers in the area. He is grateful to Juhudi Kilimo for improving smallholder living.
