Samwel's story

Samwel is a farmer from Eldoret town in the Rift Valley, Kenya where he has been farming for 10 years. His mixed farm produces milk, maize and vegetables which he sells to the local market. Farming has been his main source of income. He faces the challenges of diseases which cause poor production and fluctuation in the market prices of farm produce. Samwel has made a loan request for 35,000 Kenyan shillings in order to buy chickens and chicken feed. He says that by venturing into poultry farming, his income will increase and this will enable him to expand his farming activities. Samwel is aged 37 and is married with three school-aged children all of whom attend school.
