Susan's story

Hello there! The above picture presents to you Susan, who lives in Eldoret area of Kenya, also known as the Home of Champions because of producing so many elite runners who have broken so many world records. Susan is the mother of one lovely daughter and has been doing farming for the past two years. Through dairy farming and poultry keeping, she has been able to produce milk and eggs. Susan is a very dedicated farmer who has a never-say-die attitude and enjoys every bit of farming because, through farming, she is able to take care of her family’s needs and wants. Although she experiences challenges in farming, her attitude keeps her going. Enjoying what she does, she has even nicknamed her cow “lovii.” Susan is seeking a 40,000 KES loan to buy a chaff cutter. A chaff cutter is a mechanical device that is used to cut hay into small pieces before being mixed with other forages. This assists the animal in digestion and prevents the animal from rejecting any part of the food. With the loan, she would be able to increase her milk productivity and also increase her income levels, hence reducing the poverty level that is currently facing her. Susan’s biggest dream is to get out of this poverty level, and this loan will be a stepping stone toward improving the living standards of her family and increasing her income level.
