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

James's story

James has been in farming for ten years in his rural home area in Kisii where he lives with his wife, with whom he had four children who are now all adults. His farming income is mainly generated by sales from maize, bean and banana production. He sells secondhand clothes for additional income

James has requested a loan of 41,600 KES from Juhudi Kilimo to buy and insure a dairy cow. He plans to reinvest his farming income, especially now that he does not have many dependents, to ensure that he secures a better future and old age for himself and his wife.

He says, however, that poor infrastructure has consistently been a major challenge, making supplies significantly costlier especially when they are made to far off markets which offer better prices.
