A loan of $375 helped to buy poultry birds.

Geoffrey's story

Geoffrey, age 35, is a farmer in the Litein area of South Rift Kenya. He has been engaged in farming for 12 years, producing mainly milk and tea for the local market. He and his wife have four children. The youngest is a one-year-old baby and the eldest is 10 years old.

Geoffrey has requested a loan of 30,000 KES from Kiva partner Juhudi Kilimo to help him venture into poultry farming. He will use the loan funds to buy poultry birds. He believes this endeavor will help to uplift his family's living standards through the generation of more income. He adds that the loan will also help him improve the family dairy business. His future plan is to venture into transport business, since he says transport remains the major challenge for farmers in the area.
