A loan of $700 helped to purchase more rabbits.

Betty's story

Hello world! Meet Betty who is a mixed farmer in Kericho, a tea growing region of Kenya. She has no children. She has been practising farming for four years on her small piece of land. On this land, she keeps dairy cattle and poultry. She also grows tea and vegetables. She sells milk, eggs, tea leaves and vegetables to make a decent living.

Recently, Betty got educated and trained on rabbit farming. She acquired a few rabbits as a trial. Today, she finds rabbit keeping to be the most enjoyable of all the activities she is involved in. Her challenge was marketing the produce. The market for rabbit meat is just starting to gain traction in Kenya.

Betty is seeking a loan to purchase more rabbits. She ran into a person who introduced her to an organization that guarantees a market for rabbit farmers. The organization trains farmers to adopt rabbit farming and they take care of all the meat processing and marketing.

With your funding, Betty is going to actualize her business plan of taking rabbit farming on her land to a whole new level.

In future, Betty will get to enjoy social status stemming from rabbit farming. She sees a great potential in rabbit farming and she is advocating for other farmers to adopt it.
