A loan of $725 helped to purchase poultry.

Hanah's story

Hanah lives in the Kitale area of Kenya, which is an area with high poultry production and consumption. She has 3 children and has been doing this work for 10 years. Her primary income sources are milk, eggs, crops, and personal business.

She stated what is most enjoyable about farming: 'poultry keeping.' Her biggest challenge is 'disease.' Animals on the farm have been given the names of 'mrembo.'

Hanah was asked why she chose Juhudi Kilimo for this loan, to which she replied: 'because it finances farmers.' This client was also asked what was learned during Juhudi's required micro-finance training session: 'importance of using the loans in the required projects.'

Her highest monthly expense is school fees. When asked 'How will this loan benefit her family', Hanah replied, 'help to educate the children.'

As part of Juhudi's loan appraisal process, each borrower's assets are evaluated. Hanah owns the following: 'cow, poultry' but does not own 'pig, pump, bicycle, motorcycle, automobile'. Juhudi Kilimo also tries to measure any change in living standards based on this loan. This borrower has in the household 'mosquito net, electricity, running water, TV, DVD' but does not have 'solar power, sewing machine'.
