Moses's story

Moses is a farmer from Kitale town in western Kenya where he has been farming for 10 years now. His mixed farm is currently producing tomatoes, vegetables and maize, which are all sold locally. He earns additional income from his motorcycle transport business and a small video shop in the same town. He is 46 years old and married with three children who all attend school.

Moses has made a loan request of 40,000 KES in order to purchase chickens to enable him to practice poultry farming. He says that by diversifying his farming activities, he will be guaranteed a stable income and this will enable him to meet the basic needs of his family. His major challenges in this business have been diseases and the high cost of production, which affects his output. He is optimistic that his poultry farm will do well and that he will be one of the major suppliers of eggs in his town.
