A loan of $625 helped to start a poultry project.


John's story

John has been operating his mixed farm in the town of Nkubu, eastern Kenya for the last two years. His main products are bananas and coffee, which he sells through the coffee factory and at the local market. He also earns income from his motorbike business and masonry business.

John has requested this loan from Juhudi Kilimo of 50,000 Kenyan Shillings to start a poultry project. He intends to purchase both layers and the local breed of poultry. He says that the extra income from this loan will enable him to take his children to better schools and to build a decent home. He faces the challenges of pests and diseases, poor prices for his products and insufficient water for farming.

John is 33 years old. He is a married father of two children, ages 3 and 5. One of the children attends school.

In the future, he hopes to start a hardware shop business and buy an extra motorbike. He is happy about Juhudi's fast processing of loans and training for clients.
