A loan of $700 helped to buy poultry birds for her new business venture.

Damaris's story

Damaris is a rural resident of Nkubu, and has been active in farming for 18 successive years. She has produced vegetables and milk, going to the local markets and providing for the family needs.

Damaris has requested a loan of 60,000 KES from Juhudi Kilimo which she will use to venture into poultry farming. She says this will help her have a more stable farming income, since the poultry business is not adversely affected by weather conditions, as are crops. She hopes to improve her family's living standards with the farming income, and educate her youngest child. She has three children, ages 25, 20, and 18.

She appreciates the Juhudi Kilimo staff for the training in managing a farm as a business. She notes crop failures, pests, and diseases as the major challenges, and the motivation to venture into poultry farming.
