A loan helped to buy additional quality breeds of poultry and meet the overwhelming demand for eggs and poultry products in her area.

Faith's story

Faith (pictured with her neighbor in the background) is a 24-years-old mom of 2. She is a fighter and a hardworking, honest, and responsible mother, who has always enjoyed working independently. Faith is from a remote village in the area of Eldoret, Kenya. She has been actively involved in farming for the past few years and has never regretted it or looked back. She practices mixed farming and sells milk from her cows, eggs, and various food crops at the local market. Faith 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 that lay more eggs.

Faith is seeking a loan to purchase additional poultry. She will use her excess maize to feed the poultry and will provide the poultry with sorghum to give them 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 for Faith. Apart from an increase in egg production, she will get increased output from poultry meat, and this will further increase her income and profit margins. In addition to profits, Faith 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. Take action and give a loan!
