David is 35 years old and married with four children whose ages are between one month and ten years. Three of the children are currently attending school. He has been practicing mixed farming for the last ten years and sells his maize, milk, beans and vegetables to the local market. He mainly depends on the income from farming to take care of the basic needs of his family.

He has requested a loan of 30,000Kes through Juhudi Kilimo to start poultry farming. The extra income from this loan will enable him to afford a good life for his family. He says that his major challenge has been poultry diseases which lead to losses. There is no insurance to cover poultry at the moment. He hopes that in the next five years he will have expanded his poultry farm and be able to supply eggs to all the shops within his locality.
