Washington, a resident of Muranga in central Kenya, is married with four adult children. The youngest is still undergoing post secondary education. Washington has raised chickens for over ten years with their eggs being sold in the local market. He gets additional income from his monthly pension.

Washington has requested a loan of 60,000 KES from Juhudi Kilimo to enable him to purchase additional chickens and construct a poultry unit for them. He says the high cost of poultry feed and their treatment are the challenges he experiences.

Washington says he intends to expand his business into breeding and supplying chicks to local farmers. He says the income will help him take his last-born child through college.
