Janice is 35 years old, married, and has three children who attend school. She is a farmer in Nkubu county, Kenya, which she has been doing for 10 years. She produces tea, maize, peas, milk, and eggs, which she sells at the local market.

Janice is requesting a loan from Juhudi Kilimo for 60,000 KES, which she will use to purchase poultry birds, which will produce more eggs and increase her income. The additional income will help raise her living standards and pay school fees for her children. High costs of feeds is her major challenge in farming. Janice aspires to be the leading poultry farmer in her area in the next five years.
