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

A loan helped to buy birds and meet the village's demand for poultry products.

Teresa's story

Teresa (47) is a very modest, respectful, and smiling woman. She lives in the Eldoret area of Kenya with her husband and family. She has been actively involved in farming for the last few years and has never regretted it or looked back. She practices mixed farming and sells cow milk, eggs, and various food crops at the local market.

Teresa passionately loves poultry farming, but the biggest challenge she faces is a lack of capital to buy quality breeds that lay more eggs and are resistant to diseases. She is seeking a loan to purchase additional poultry. She will use her excess maize to feed the poultry and will provide sorghum to give the birds energy and green grams (beans) for protein. Through better feeding, they 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, Teresa will get increased output from poultry meat, and this will further increase her income and profit margins. She will also 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. Through the increased profits, she intends to improve her living conditions and live a better life.

Thanks to your support, Teresa will succeed in making her dreams come true.
