A loan of $600 helped to expand her poultry farm.

Getruda's story

Getruda has been practicing mixed farming in Kitale town in western Kenya for thirty years now. She sells her products of maize, beans and bananas to the local market. She mainly depends on the income from her farm for the basic needs of her family. Getruda is 54 years old and a widowed mother of 10 children, five of whom attend school.

She has made a third loan request from Juhudi Kilimo of 50,000 Kes to expand her poultry farm. She will use this loan to buy additional stock of chickens and chicken feed. That will enable her to practice commercial poultry farming. She laments that poultry feeds are becoming extra expensive and unaffordable to her and this has been her major setback. She says that her intention is to expand her farm in the future and be the main supplier of poultry products to the local market.
