Jane
Jane, a mother of two, is a farmer based in Kitale, Kenya. She has been involved in farming for the past 7 years. She makes ends meet by selling milk, eggs and maize. She enjoys feeding her cow and chicken.

However, Jane faces a serious challenge. There is a great insecurity of animals in the area she comes from. Many farmers in the area have incurred losses in the past from cattle rustlers. Jane is resilient. She aims to grow bigger by attending several trainings to expand her knowledge on poultry farming. With your funding, Jane is going to expand her poultry section by purchasing more birds. The additional income will provide a better life for her family.
