A loan of $550 helped to purchase materials for constructing a zero-grazing unit for his cows.

Basil's story

Basil is 32, a farmer in Nkubu county in Kenya. He has been practicing mixed-farming for 4 years, producing milk and fruits which he sells to people in his local area. He also operates a boda-boda business (bicycle or motorcycle transport) as an additional source of income.

He is requesting a 45,000 KES loan from Juhudi Kilimo to purchase materials to construct a zero-grazing unit for his dairy cows. A zero-grazing unit is a shaded, enclosed structure where fodder and water are brought, vs the cows roaming in the open, which facilitates catching diseases or damaging the environment. This will help him increase his production of milk, leading to more income and improvement of his living standards.

Poor rainfall and pests are his major challenges in farming.

He aspires to buy his own car to help him in the transportation of his products.

Basil says Juhudi Kilimo has the best interest rates for small-scale farmers.
