Edward K. is 35 years old, married, and has three children from the ages of 3 to 9. He has been farming for the past seven years and sells milks, eggs, and vegetables to the local market. He also has a motorcycle transport business.

This will be Edward's third loan with Juhudi Kilimo, and he plans to use it to purchase poultry. This will result in greater egg production, used for home consumption and sale, leading to increased income for his family.

In the next five years, Edward hopes to have 1,000 poultry, a posho mill, and act as the main egg supplier to the local market.
