Ruth is a good member of Kahumbu Kwirera Mothers and she has been a member since the group started in January 2005. She is married with three children who are still in primary school.
She sells milk and maize to clients in Kirigo tranding centre. The reason why she started selling maize is that; it is the staple food for the Kenyans and therefore at any time you are assured of making a sale. She borrowed a loan of USD.300 from the group and repaid it and it has pushed her to selling over 100 kgs in two days.
