A loan of $700 helped to purchase a dairy cow and poultry.

Winstar's story

Winstar, a progressive farmer originating from Litein has been doing dairy farming for the last three years. He is particularly passionate about dairy farming. His main sources of income are milk and crop produce from his farm.

Like any serious entrepreneur, Winstar takes customer satisfaction very seriously. His most enjoyable moment occurs when he is supplying happy buyers with his farm produce. However, from time to time, the payments are delayed especially when dealing with institutions.

Winstar is seeking a loan to purchase a great quality dairy cow. This cow produces 15 to 20 litres of milk daily on average. This will provide Winstar with a regular source of income that will cushion him at times when he is waiting for delayed payments.

Winstar has a clear business plan. Juhudi Kilimo, smallholder farmers’ microfinance, has been very encouraging and supportive to such progressive farmers. We want his farm to be an example to other farmers who have potential but are constrained by funds.

Winstar says the extra income he will generate will go to his sibling’s education.
