Willy
Willy, a father of seven, is a smallholder farmer in Kitale, Kenya. For the past 8 years, he has been selling milk and maize from his farm. He also purchased a motorcycle to help in the transportation of the produce to the market. Pests and diseases have led 'Cheusi' (his dairy cow) to produce less milk. With your financial aid, Willy wants to start a poultry project. This will increase food security for his family and provide additional income that will go to his children's school fees.
