A loan of $700 helped to buy poultry birds and purchase and insure a dairy cow.


Ambrose's story

Ambrose has been in farming for six years with his farm producing beans, eggs and maize for the local market. He says his family of six children, whose ages are between 1 and 15 years, have been relying on farming as the only source of income.

Ambrose has made a request for a loan amounting to 61,200 KES to help him venture into dairy farming by buying and insuring a dairy cow at 31,200 KES and using the remaining 30,000 KES to boost his poultry farming by buying more poultry birds. He aspires to own five dairy cows in five years.

He mentions the high costs of feeds as the major farming challenge in the area.
