Isaac
It's one thing to have a chicken farm, but to start an actual business out of it is something else entirely. Isaac is a chicken farmer, but he wants to be a business person as well. He is a father of 4 and has practiced mixed farming for the last 30 years!

To earn a decent living, he sells milk, eggs, tea, greens, and engages in numerous small personal businesses.

He recently started earning a profit from his poultry farm. Selling eggs became something of a hobby. He wanted to sell more but was constrained by the quantity. His biggest challenge today is limited funds to expand.

Isaac is seeking a loan from Kiva lenders via Juhudi Kilimo to purchase poultry. Isaac wants to purchase layers to fully tap into the chicken industry that is currently booming.

Proceeds from poultry farming will be used to satisfy his family and business needs in future. His mission is to improve his family's quality of life.
