A loan of $225 helped to purchase poultry birds.

Joel's story

Joel (pictured above on a motorcycle) is aged 43 and married with four children, three of whom are still in school. He has been in farming for 13 years and employs one farmhand, producing milk and tea and selling both to the local market. He also runs a motocycle transport business, which provides additional income.

Joel has requested a loan of 20,000 Kenya shillings (KES) from Juhudi Kilimo to purchase poultry birds. He says the loan will help him improve his income and his family living standards. He is optimistic the poultry business will continue to grow and even boost his transport which he runs alongside farming and provide income to educate the three children still schooling.

He mentions poor weather conditions and inflation on farming as the major challenges to farmers in the area.
