A loan of $425 helped to buy and insure a dairy cow.

William's story

William is a father of three children and has been in the farming business for six successive years, in his rural home in Kitale, Western Kenya. He runs his farm with the help of one farmhand, currently, and he sells his produce of milk, eggs and tomatoes.

William has requested a loan of 36,400 KES from Juhudi Kilimo, to buy and insure a dairy cow. He aspires to run a farm of five, good-quality dairy cows. In addition, he wants to establish a grain milling machine in the local market, for additional income.

William says the shortage of animal feeds remains the major challenge to him. He says the income from the new dairy cow will help boost his family business.
