A loan of $600 helped to construct a zero-grazing unit.

Mark's story

Mark is a 35 year-old married man and was blest with three children, two of whom attend school. He has been practicing mixed farming for the past seven years. He grows tobacco and fruits and sells in the local market. Besides farming, he is a teacher by profession.

He has requested a loan of KES.50,000 from Juhudi Kilimo so that he can put up a zero grazing unit to help with his livestock. The use of this loan will help him educate his children. He plans on buying his own car. The challenges he faces are poor infrastructure and pests and diseases.
He says that Juhudi Kilimo has affordable interest rates for small scale farmers.
