Ruth is 32 years old, married to Peter Mburu, and they have four children who are currently in school.

Ruth has been farming for the last seven years, growing crops and rearing livestock. She recently started rearing rabbits, a venture that has proved to be very profitable.

Ruth was introduced to KADET by her friend and this will be her fourth loan. She has repaid her previous loans successfully and on time. She is requesting a loan to build a new rabbit house, increase her livestock, and build a greenhouse where she will plant tomatoes and onions.

Ruth hopes to use the profit from her loan to develop her rabbit-rearing business and become a big supplier of rabbit meat in the local market.
