A loan of $925 helped to expand her poultry farm.


Mercy's story

Mercy is 33 years old and married with an eleven year-old child in school. She's a farmer near Nkubu in Eastern Kenya. She's been poultry farming for just one year. She previously ran a restaurant but now sells eggs at the local market. She says that the main challenge to her business is the high cost of feeds.



She requested this loan through Juhudi Kilimo for Kes. 70,000 to purchase more chickens, after completing a previous loan for Kes. 45,000. She says that these loans from Juhudi have helped her realize her dream of becoming a poultry farmer and that the extra income she'll earn will help her raise her family's standard of living. In the future, she says her target is to have 3000 layers (for eggs) and maybe even some broilers (to sell for meat).
