Regina
Meet Regina, a small-scale farmer in Kitale, Kenya. She owns a small piece of land where she lives with her 6 children. For the last 12 years, she has been growing maize on the piece of land. She has managed to make a living selling the maize grains to millers after harvest. She is also involved in other small personal businesses to make extra money.

Recently, she started keeping poultry for fun. She liked the fact that she could wake up in the morning and collect eggs for her family's breakfast. She started looking at poultry as a business when she had more hens and surplus eggs for breakfast. She started selling eggs to neighbours. More neighbours kept coming wanting more and more everyday.

Regina seeks a loan to purchase poultry.. She can hardly meet the demand as it is today. Her major challenge is raising funds. She was, however, referred to Juhudi Kilimo, KIVA's field partner, by a well-wisher.

With your loan, Regina will grow her poultry business to the next level. The extra income will meet her high business-related costs. The loan will help her family improve their standard of living.
