Fancy
Fancy, a mother of four, has been a mixed farmer for 10 years. She lives together with her family in Kericho, Kenya. Her primary income sources are milk, eggs, vegetables and tea produced at her farm. Two things she enjoys are poultry farming and making profits from selling her yields. However, her biggest challenge is outbreak of disease.

Fancy has been to various financial and agricultural trainings. She came to appreciate loans as stepping stones to success. Fancy looks for loan providers with favourable interest terms such as Juhudi Kilimo that will not strain her: She is already encountering high farm input expenses.

Fancy is seeking a loan to purchase poultry. This will expand the poultry operation she has going and generate more income to repay the loan. The family will enjoy increased income once the loan is fully serviced.
