A loan of $350 helped to purchase poultry birds.

Lucy's story

Lucy is aged 45. She is a farmer in Kitale county in Kenya, where she lives with her husband and five children who are all schooling. Lucy has been in farming for the past six years, producing maize, vegetables and milk, which she sells at the local market in her area.

She is requesting a 30,000 KES (Kenyan shillings) loan from Juhudi Kilimo to purchase poultry birds. She will then sell the poultry products and earn extra income that will help her uplift her livelihood and pay for her children's schooling. She wishes to own a posho mill (a grinding machine that crushes maize into maize flour) in the next five years.

Poor prices for products, pests and diseases are her major challenges in farming.
