Nita's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to buy chicks and construct new hatcheries for a new poultry enterprise so that she can generate more income to support her family.

Nita's story

Nita, 42 years of age, is a very hardworking, honest, and dedicated farmer who lives in Panda, a remote village in Kitale. She is happily married and is blessed with one child. She has been practicing mixed farming for the last seven years and has gained so much experience. To afford a decent and comfortable life for her children, she has been selling milk, eggs, and various food crops from her farmland.

The Kitale area is very populated, and demand for poultry products and eggs is very high. Like many farmers from her region, she finds poultry farming very enjoyable, and she stated that the most enjoyable part about poultry farming is “the increased profits I enjoy.”

Her biggest challenge, however, is meeting the demand, which is really high. She lacks funds to increase her poultry farming operation, and she is seeking a loan of 60,000 KES to buy chicks and construct new hatcheries for a new poultry enterprise.

Accessing funds is very challenging for her because she is a woman. However, through institutions such as Juhudi Kilimo via Kiva, she feels relieved knowing that her dream will be achieved, and that she will be able to buy more poultry.

Through the loan, she will sell eggs and poultry products to her neighbors and to the local market. This will translate to increased profit margins and an improved income level.
