Joan's story

Joan is thirty-nine years old and a farmer in the Kitale county in Kenya. She lives with her husband and two children; who are both school. She has been in farming for the past eight years producing milk and poultry products which she sells at the local market in her area. She runs a posho mill as an additional source of income.

She is requesting 40,000 KES loan from juhudi kilimo to purchase poultry birds and materials for constructing a dairy unit which will help her take better care of her dairy cows and thus more milk production. From the sale of milk and poultry products, she will earn extra income to uplift the family’s livelihood and later use some of the money to pay for her children’s education. She aspires to have acquired another piece of land for more production in the next five years.

Inadequate capital and high cost of production are her major challenges in farming.

She is very grateful to juhudi kilimo for financing her with the loan.
