Our first Jijenge Kijana beneficiary has been an ITF member since 2011 and has participated in various organisational activities. As he testified, "Joining ITF has been of great benefit to me. I learned business skills, through which I developed critical thinking, and ventured into poultry and quail keeping. This has made me a businessman with great expectations for the future."
However, in February, this expectation was put to the test when his daytime employment was cancelled days after he launched a small poultry farm near his home in Dandora. He used his monthly salary to set up the farm, with the plan to use its portion for the next three months for feeding and medication until the chicks mature and start laying eggs for sale to cover the expenses and make a profit. A jijenge kijana fund was introduced with his project as a pilot project, with ITF obligated to give him Ksh. 3000 every month, from March to June, to cater for the monthly feeds of 30 chicks on the farm, with the venture expected to start generating revenues by the end of June. He was expected to repay the intervention with 12% interest between July and December 2015. He has since completed the repayment successfully, and his poultry farm is profitable.
