A loan of $500 helped to buy and insure a dairy cow and construct a dairy unit.

Wilter's story

Wilter is a mother and a farmer in Kitale, Western Kenya and has been in active farming for seven years. Her farm produces tomatoes and cabbages for the local market. She is married with five children who are all schooling.

Wilter has made a second loan request with Juhudi Kilimo to buy and insure a dairy cow. She says this will help in providing the family with milk for daily consumption as well as additional income to meet other family needs. She adds her hotel business which she runs to supplement her farming income will also do better due to availability of cheaper milk from her own farm.

She however points out at animal diseases and occasional droughts as the main challenges.
