Tabitha's story

Tabitha is aged 53 and married. She has 7 children, two of whom are currently attending school. She has been practicing mixed farming for the last 28 years in Kitale town, western Kenya. Her mixed farm produces maize, vegetables, eggs and milk, which are all sold locally. She earns additional income from her posho mill in the same location. Tabitha has a good record with Juhudi Kilimo, after successfully repaying her fifth loan of 100,000KES. She has made a loan request of 55,000KES in order to purchase additional stock of chickens and chicken feed. The extra income from this project will help to pay for the education of her children and to improve her family's livelihood. Her primary challenges have been poor weather conditions and diseases, which affects her production. In the future, she plans to buy a tractor to help improve her production.
