Florah C. was born in 1962. She is married to Mr. John Cheboi and they have been blessed with three children: Jepkorir (21 years), Kangogo (20 years) and Joseph (17 years). Mrs. C. lives with her family in Pemwai village. Florah is a farmer doing horticulture. She started her farming 25 years ago and most of her clients are residents of Pemwai and its environs. She makes a monthly income of 6,000 Kenyan shillings from this farming business. She describes herself as hardworking and determined.
Florah was introduced to KADET by a friend who was already a client. Mrs. C. has borrowed 80,000 KES from KADET. She plans to use 60,000 KES to purchase fertilizers, maize seeds and other farm inputs for the forthcoming planting season. The remaining 20,000 KES will be used to pay school fees for her children. If this loan boosts her business, Florah intends to plough back the profits into the farm and buy dairy cows. Florah hopes to have a stable income and thus be able to educate her children further.
