Violet
Violet has been actively farming for six years, producing and selling maize in her rural home in Kitale. She also runs a hotel from the local market to supplement her farming income. Violet is married and has four children, all adults save for the last born.

Violet has requested a loan of 31,200 KES from Juhudi Kilimo to buy and insure a dairy cow. She says that farming has been and still is the major source of income that helps to meet family needs, especially the children's education. Violet says that seasonal changes affect farming income.
