Teresa's story

Hello world! Meet Teresa. She is a 40-year-old small-scale farmer based in Sugoi Village in the North Rift area of Kenya. She runs a quarter acre of farmland with the help of her two sons. On the plot, she grows maize and keeps dairy animals. Teresa is seeking a loan to purchase poultry. She wants to start a poultry farm in a small way and grow it over time. The new venture will help her make enough income to buy enough food for her family. Having poultry will also help her diversify her business, mitigating business risks. The poultry birds will also bring her other advantages such as special meals with chicken meat during holidays; soil aeration when the birds scratch the earth looking for bugs; manure from the solid waste; and being able utilize off-colour grains from the maize harvest to feed the chickens.
