Kitale, Kenya / Farming

A loan of $500 helped to buy poultry birds and expand his dairy unit.


Benson's story

Benson has been in active farming for fifteen years in his rural home in Kitale, Western Kenya, where he lives with his family of three children, all of school age. His farm products, which are mainly milk, maize, and horticultural products, are all sold within the local market.

Benson has requested a loan of 40,000 KES from Kiva partner Juhudi Kilimo to buy poultry birds at 30,000 KES and expand the dairy unit at 10,000 KES. He is focusing on having a flock of five thousand in his farm.

He says the high costs of feed and unreliable rains are the challenges in farming.
