Joyce is 38 years old and married with four school-going children. She operates a retail shop where she sells maize, beans, green grams (mung beans) and rice. She also runs a posho mill (for grinding maize into flour) to earn extra income. Her family is her priority and therefore she works hard to provide for the family.
She was introduced to Faulu Kenya by her friend and she is an active member of the Elim Self Help Group. She attends their weekly meetings and pays her dues consistently. Because of this, the group members have guaranteed her a loan of 30,000 KES from Faulu Kenya. She hopes to expand her business and employ more people.
