A loan of $425 helped to expand her poultry project and purchase a dairy goat.

Cherono's story

31-year-old Cherono is a single mother of three children between 7 and 11 years old. All of the children attend school. Cherono has been farming for the last five years. She depends mainly on the income from the sale of vegetables, milk and fruits to provide for her family. She is from Western Kenya in Kitale town.

Cherono is one of the many active clients of Juhudi Kilimo who have accessed several loans to expand their farming business. She has successfully completed her fifth loan of KES. 32,000. She has requested this sixth loan from Juhudi for KES. 32,000 to expand her poultry project and buy a dairy goat. This loan will enable her to purchase more layers (chickens kept for eggs), which will increase her sales and earn her more income. This income, she says, will help her improve her family's standard of living.

Cherono is happy because from the previous loans she has been able to generate income that has enabled her to acquire her own piece of land. She plans to have two dairy cows and be the main milk supplier of the local market.
