Enos resides in Kitale, Rift Valley. He has two children. He has been in farming for five years, dealing with milk and eggs.
He has requested a loan of KES 60,000 for the purchase of poultry which will produce more eggs and thus by sale of the eggs, there will be improvement in the family business. He plans to have four thousand poultry birds and a motorbike for generating more family income. His major challenge is the diseases that affect poultry.
