Pekwe is a resident of Likoni, Kenya. She is married and has been carrying out the business of tree and animal farming for the last ten years. She started off with one goat and then gradually increased the number of stock, which enabled her to purchase a parcel of land on which she carries out her current activities.
Pekwe is applying for a loan of 10,650 Kenyan shillings to cultivate the land and also purchase an ox plough. The challenge in the area is the seasonal weather but she has great plans for the future, which she intends to achieve through the loan, including the setting up of a retail shop from the additional income from this loan.
