Annah
Meet Annah. She is a wife and mother of four. She is a mixed farmer based in Kitale, Kenya. She has been growing maize for the last five years. Recently, she joined Juhudi Kilimo and secured a loan for poultry. Until recently, she was making money selling crops and enganging in other personal businesses. Since starting her poultry business, she has realized its various advantages such as great demand and a source of regular income. The challenge she has to deal with is diseases that infect her birds. She also has challenges cleaning the poultry house.

If you assist Annah with a loan, she will purchase more poultry and assist other small-lscale farmers to embrace poultry farming by selling them birds for keeping. She will also provide technical assistance to her clients. Through increased income, the loan will help Annah's family to cover their expenses and meet their basic needs
