Margaret wants to venture into poultry farming. She is requesting a loan of 40,000 KES from Juhudi Kilimo to purchase poultry. She will sell the poultry products and earn extra income to help her increase her livelihood and pay for her children’s schooling. Margaret's major farming challenges are poor transport networks and high competiton. She aspires to buy another dairy cow in the next five years. Margaret hopes Juhudi Kilimo will introduce school fees loans in the near future.
