Elizabeth
HELLO! Meet Elizabeth, 28 years of age. She is very ambitious and enterprising, and a go-getting woman who hails from the Kerugoya area of Kenya. She is a proud mother of one, and has been doing mixed farming for the past five years. Her primary sources of income are egg selling, crop selling, and some personal business that she does to make ends meet.

Elizabeth loves farming and has even nicknamed her cow “Njeri” (from a person’s name) and she really takes good care of her dairy cows. The Kerugoya area has favorable conditions that favor horticulture farming, that is good soils, good climate, a good transport system and a ready market for horticulture products. Elizabeth wants to take advantage and start horticultural farming.

She is seeking a loan to start horticulture farming, and through improved income she will be able to improve her living conditions and secure the future of her child.

The financial benefits that Elizabeth will reap are almost immediate, and hence she will be assured of a secure future. She plans to start exporting her horticulture to international markets once she has accumulated more profits.
