A loan of $375 helped to purchase a cow.


Eunice's story

Eunice has three children. She lives in the Kisii area of Kenya which does not have much available land. For the past three years, Eunice has been a farmer. She finds farming maize and dairy-keeping to be the most enjoyable parts of farming and her biggest challenge is the lack of quality seeds and farming equipment. Animals on the farm have been given the names of “Nyaringa.” When asked why she chose Juhudi Kilimo for her loan, Eunice replied, “because of the low interest rate.” When she took a required microfinance session, she learned that Juhudi issues loans to groups. Eunice’s highest monthly expense is school fees and she plans to use the profit from her loan to benefit her family by helping to pay school fees.

As part of Juhudi's loan appraisal process, each borrower's assets are evaluated. Eunice owns cow and poultry, but does not own a pig, pump, bicycle, motorcycle or automobile. She has a household mosquito net and sewing machine, but does not have electricity, solar power, running water, a TV or DVD.

Eunice is requesting a loan to buy a cow.
