Mary is a hardworking lady who sells tree and plant seedlings in Kiambu to earn a living. She has been in the business since 2004. She says that the business is very profitable because she prepares the seedlings herself and later on sells them. Before she ventured into this business, she was previously practicing farming where she grew cereals and vegetables which she sold in the market.
Mary saves her profits with her group in Faulu Kenya called Step Forward which enables her to access loans because the group guarantees them. She hopes to grow her business into a large-scale operation and improve her living standards in the future.
Mary has requested a loan of Kes 20,000 from Faulu Kenya to buy more seeds for her business.
