A loan helped to buy poultry.

Veronica's story

Veronica is happily married and is blessed with adorable children. She has been practicing mixed farming for the last five years and has gained a great deal of experience.

To afford a decent and comfortable life for her children, she has been selling milk, eggs, and a variety of food crops from her farmland. The Kerugoya area is very populated, and the demand for poultry products and eggs is very high. Like many farmers from her region, she finds poultry farming very enjoyable, and she stated that the most enjoyable part about poultry farming is “the increased profits I enjoy.” Her biggest challenge, however, is meeting the demand that is really high.

She lacks funds to increase her poultry farming, and she is seeking a loan of 80,000 KES (Kenyan shillings) to buy poultry. As a result of the loan, she will sell more eggs and poultry products to her neighbors and to the local market and this will translate to an increased profit margin and an improved income level. The extra income she will get will be used to fully repay the loan, permanently change her living conditions, and secure the future of her school-going children.
Veronica knows that, with the help of Juhudi Kilimo and those at Kiva, her dreams will become a reality.
