A loan helped to buy poultry.

Jane's story

Jane is a farmer from a remote village in the Bungoma area of Kenya. She resides with her husband and family. She has been actively involved in farming for the past five years and has never regretted it or looked back.

She practices mixed farming and sells milk, eggs, and various food crops at the local market. She also has a side hustle business.

Jane passionately loves poultry farming, but the biggest challenge she faces is a lack of capital to buy quality breeds of poultry that are resistant to diseases and lay more eggs.

Jane is seeking a loan to purchase additional poultry. She will use her excess maize to feed the poultry. She will also provide sorghum to give the poultry energy and green grams (beans) for protein. Through better feeding, the poultry will increase their egg production and they will lay more eggs that are of good quality, which will translate to more income. Apart from an increase in egg production, Jane will get an increased output of poultry meat, and this will further increase her income and profit margins.

Through increased profits, she intends to turn around her living conditions and live a better life.

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

Jane is very thankful for her lenders' understanding and trust.
