A loan of $600 helped to buy dairy goats.

Jackson's story

Jackson is a farmer in the Nkubu area of Central Kenya. He is aged 52 and married with five children who are adults, save for the last three who are still schooling. His 25 years in active farming has seen him educate his first two children. His farm is currently producing maize, fruits, vegetables and poultry products.

Jackson has requested a loan of 50,000 Kenyan shillings (KES) from Juhudi Kilimo to buy dairy goats. He adds he has resorted to dairy goat farming because of harsh weather conditions that are rather hostile for dairy cows, and because of common poultry diseases which lead to huge losses of poultry flocks during outbreaks. However, he hopes to raise enough income to educate the last three children.

Jackson points at high efficiency in loan processing by Juhudi Kilimo as a major step in improving the lives of small-scale farmers.
