A loan of $550 helped buy a dairy cow.

Alfred's story

Alfred is a resident of Nyamira in South Rift Kenya. He is a father of four children aged between 17 and 4 years, all are schooling. He has been in farming for 15 years and sells his products, which include tea, milk and maize, to the local markets. He also works as a carpenter besides farming.

Alfred has made a loan request amounting to 45,000 KES from Juhudi Kilimo to buy a dairy cow. He says the dairy cow will improve his family upkeep and earn more income to educate his children. He plans to expand his carpentry workshop and dairy business. He adds that the currently products yields, especially that of maize, are too low to meet his family's needs, and calls for diversification as well as expansion for a more productive dairy business.

Alfred laments the poor road network as his major challenge, especially with delivery of products to the market.
