Evaline is a mixed farmer and resides in Kitale in Western Kenya where she lives with her family. She is 36 years old and has been actively farming for six years. Her main products for the local market have been horticultural products, milk, and poultry products.

Evaline has requested a loan of 60,000 KES to help her expand her poultry business. This will help her to earn more income and, hence, acquire more land for production.

The major challenges in this venture are diseases and pests, fluctuating market prices, and the high cost of production and theft.
