A loan of $525 helped to expand his poultry project.

Alfred's story

Forty-seven-year-old Alfred is a married father of six children, aged 14 to 27 years. Four of the children are currently attending school. He is a farmer in western Kenya, near the town of Kitale. He has been farming for 10 years and mainly depends on the income from the maize, vegetables, and beans that he sells to the local market to cater for his family's needs.

Alfred recently completed his first loan from Juhudi Kilimo for 30,000 KES, which he used to set up his poultry project. He has requested this loan from Juhudi for 40,000 KES to expand his poultry project. His biggest challenge in this business has been the fluctuation in the market price of their produce and the high cost of drugs and poultry feed. He believes that this loan will help him expand his project, hence increasing his overall produce, which will earn him more income and enable him to educate his children. In the future he hopes to set up a store that will be a major supplier of eggs in the area.

He says that he is "grateful to Juhudi for empowering him economically."
