A loan of $625 helped to buy poultry birds.

Ruth's story

Ruth is a mother of four children between 23 and 6 years old.

She has been in farming for five years. Her farm produces milk, maize and vegetables that she sells in the local market. She runs a hotel too, to cushion her farming income in meeting family needs.

Ruth has made a loan request amounting to 50,000 KES from Juhudi Kilimo to buy poultry birds for a venture into poultry farming. She says the boost and diversification in farming will help her pay for the education of her children and later buy a motorcycle to help her enter into the transport business as well. Her focus is to own 3,000 birds in her farm.

She says that food shortage for poultry is a major challenge to farmers in the area, though the market for birds is readily available.
