Samwel's story

Samwel is a smallholder farmer from a remote village in Misikhu in the Bungoma area of Kenya. He resides with his wife and family. He has been actively involved in farming for the last five years and has never regretted it or looked back.

He practices mixed farming and sells milk, eggs, and various food crops at the local market He also does a side hustle business. Samwel passionately loves poultry farming, but the biggest challenge he faces is a lack of capital to buy quality breeds of poultry that are resistant to diseases and lay more eggs.

Samwel is seeking a loan to purchase additional poultry. He will use his excess maize to feed the poultry and will provide sorghum to give the poultry energy and green grams (beans) for protein. Through better feeding, the poultry will increase their egg production and will lay more eggs that are of good quality, which will translate to more income.

Apart from an increase in egg production, he will get increased output from poultry meat, and this will further increase his income and profit margins. Through increased profits, he intends to turn around his living conditions and live a better life.

In addition to profits, Samwel will benefit from chicken manure, which contains the highest amount of nitrogen of any livestock manure and is very valuable as fertilizer. He will be able to save money that would have been spent to buy fertilizer.

Thanks to your support, Samwel will succeed in making his dreams come true. Take action and give a loan!
