A loan of $350 helped to increase egg sales by purchasing poultry birds.


Japheth's story

Japheth is a 36-year-old farmer in Kitale county in Kenya where he lives with his wife and three children. His children are all in school. Japheth has been in farming for the past five years. He sells eggs and maize at the local market.

Japheth is requesting a 30,000 KES loan from Juhudi Kilimo to purchase poultry birds. The poultry will increase egg production and allow Japheth to earn extra income after selling the eggs. This will help Japheth improve his family's standard of living and pay for his children's schooling.

Japheth aspires to have two thousand poultry hens and three dairy cows in the next five years. The high cost of poultry feed is his major challenge in farming.
