Grace
Grace is 47 years old and married with four children, ages 19, 21, 25, and 28; two of her children are still attending school. She's a dairy farmer in the Nyamira area of Nyanza province of Kenya and has been farming since 1982. She sells milk locally and also earns income from tea farming. She says that the main challenge to her business is marketing her milk products.
