A loan of $350 helped to buy poultry birds.


Chavasinya's story

Chavasinya, age 40, is a farmer in Kitake. He has five solid years of experience in farming. Maize, vegetables, and beans are his main produce, which he sells at the local market. He also trades in livestock in addition to active farming.

He and his wife have six children, the eldest of whom is 12 years old. The youngest is a nine-month-old baby.

Chavasinya has requested a loan of 30,000 KES from Juhudi Kilimo in order to buy poultry birds. This will enable him to venture into poultry farming, which will be a valuable new source of income, particularly since his farming endeavors face the ongoing obstacles of the high costs of inputs and unreliable rains. He hopes his new business will grow and and enable him to embrace modern techniques in poultry farming. He intends in this way to exploit the economies of scale that present the main challenge for most small farmers to do their farming with limited capacity.
