A loan of $675 helped to buy chickens and poultry feed.

Lucy's story

Lucy is age 45 and a married mother of five children, four of whom are currently attending school. She has been practicing mixed farming for the last 30 years in her hometown in eastern Kenya. Her mixed farm produces bananas, maize and milk, which she sells to the local market. Farming has been her main source of income and she is glad that the income from her farm has enabled her to cater to her family's needs.

Lucy has made a loan request of 60,000 KES to buy chickens and poultry feed for her poultry farm. She says that the income that will be generated through this project will be used to pay school fees for her children. Her primary challenges in farming have been delay in payment by debtors and the high cost of animal feed, which affects her output. In the future, she plans to expand her farming activities and to sell her products to a wider market.
