Wilkister
Hello world! Meet Wilkister. She is a mother of 2 girls and 2 boys who is practising mixed farming in rainfed Kisii region in Kenya. She sells her farm produce at a local market once a week during the market-day. She has put many years into farming. She also engages in other seasonal businesses around farming to make extra money.

Wilkister is seeking a loan to purchase poultry. She favours poultry farming because of the regular income generation. The additional poultry will boost her egg output. Egg prices are consistent and the market is ready. However, the biggest challenges she faces are poor roads and lack of market for other farm produce since everyone is involved in farming.

Wilkister will use the additional income to take care of her children’s education. Her future dream is to provide her children will everything necessary to help them lead a much improved lifestyle.
