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


John's story

John, age 23, is a farmer in Kitale county in Kenya, where he lives with his wife and children. He has been practicing mixed farming for the past three years, producing maize and milk. He sells these to the people in his local area.

He is requesting a loan in the amount of 41,600 KES from Juhudi Kilimo in order to buy and insure a dairy cow. The money gained from this cow will uplift his family's standard of living and pay for his children's school fees. In the future, he plans to have four dairy cows, allowing his farm to produce more milk and bring more income to the family over the next five years.

Lack of sufficient rainfall, leading to food shortage, is his major challenge in farming.

John is very thankful to Juhudi Kilimo for providing this loan.
