In 2012 five poultry groups came together and developed a constitution and registered a Community Based Organization   with the Government under the name “MAKUENI POULTRY FARMERS CBO” . The CBO is based in Wote, the headquarters of Makueni County. 


As months went by more groups joined this CBO and currently the poultry have risen from 5 to 37 with a total membership of over 2500 farmers from the whole County of Makueni. When the CBO started, they would process 20 chicken per day but as the membership grew  and  processing of chicken  increased from 20 to 300 birds per day.

Poultry farmers were doing so well but needed a good reliable credit facility to improve and expand their poultry enterprises and to also make their businesses sustainable.  The CBO approached AMT  for this service.

After thorough appraisals from the officer in charge, the CBO qualified for  a Ksh. 500,000 loan. This loan benefited 20 members of the CBO.

  “I was able to expand my poultry house and now I’m able to house 300 chicken"
