A loan of $350 helped to purchase a water pump for irrigation.


John's story

John is aged 28 and a farmer in Ndaragwa County in Kenya, where he lives with his wife and two children (only one has started schooling). He has been in farming for the past eight years, producing vegetables and milk that he sells at the local market in his area.

He is requesting a 30,000 KES loan from Juhudi Kilimo, which he will use to purchase a water pump for irrigation. This will help him water his crops, which will provide him with more yields and thus more income to help uplift his living standards. He will also use some of the money to pay for his children's schooling. He hopes to have improved in farming by producing in a large scale in the next five years.

Drought is his major challenge in farming.

John believes that they are privileged to have Juhudi Kilimo working with them.
