A loan of $475 helped to pay for more poultry.

William's story

William is a farmer in the Kitale area of Western Kenya where he also works as a non-teaching staff member in a nearby school. He has been in farming for over 10 years and is currently employing two farmhands and producing milk and eggs which are sold to the local market. He is married with four children with the last two still schooling.

William has made a loan request of 40,000 KES from Juhudi Kilimo to buy more birds for his poultry business.He says the additional birds will make him gain economies of scale in the business due to capacity and in turn adequately provide for the family in terms of the children's education and food. He also says he wants to expand his farm to accommodate more dairy animals.

He however points to high treatment costs for the animals due to common outbreaks of disease as the main challenge to the farming business, especially the dairy one.
