A loan of $600 helped to purchase chickens and chicken feed.

Jane's story

Jane has been farming in Kitale, western Kenya, for 20 years and employs one farmhand. Her mixed farm produces milk, maize, beans, vegetables and fruits which are sold to the local market. She earns additional income from her business selling secondhand clothes and paraffin to the local market.

Jane is 39 years old and married with 6 school-aged children who all attend school. She has made a loan request of 50,000 KES through Juhudi Kilimo to purchase chickens and chicken feed. She says that this will enable her to expand her poultry farm and practice commercial poultry farming. The income generated from this project will enable her to pay her children's school fees and improve her family's livelihood. She hopes that in the next 5 years her poultry farm will have expanded and that she will be able to venture into the breeding business.
