Agnes's story

Hello world, meet Agnes. She is a mother of 5 with a deeply engraved passion in dairy farming. After all, that is what she has been doing for over 25 years. She owns a small farm in Mwituna village which is situated in the Central Province of Kenya. The income she makes from farming is not sufficient to comfortably sustain her family. As a result, Agnes has ventured into a couple of small side businesses to make extra shillings. With the aid of her 58 year-old husband, Agnes also rears poultry and grows tea, amongst other crops. Agnes is seeking a loan of KES 100,000 for constructing a cowshed. She plans to put up a well-designed barn that will provide a clean, comfortable home for her herd and a pleasant, efficient workplace for her. In a bid to increase milk production, the cowshed will provide a favourable environment for the cows. With your loan, Agnes’ has carefully planned for the storage and handling of milk, feed, bedding and manure, as these account for most of the labour in any dairy farm. The housing will have a plentiful, dependable supply of good water, made available 24 hours a day. The income she will make from this investment will put her in a position to comfortably afford increasing farming costs. Her family also stands to benefit from the growth of their agri-business.
