Violet's story

This is Violet. She is a woman who lives in the area of Kitale. It is a thriving area full of people like Violet, who, with hard and honest work, make this town a very productive town. Violet is a woman eager to get ahead. She is married and lives with her family. She is blessed with lovely children who are her greatest motivation in life to persevere, because she wants to provide for them a better future. Violet was unable to study to get a professional career because of the economic situation that her family faced. However, she never gave up and she has been practicing farming for the past 10 years. Violet always says, “I have always had an affinity for farming, and it runs in my blood.” Because of how much she likes farming, she has even nicknamed one of her cows, which makes her a very proud farmer, especially when she is milking her cows. Through her dairy cow, she is able to get between 10 and 15 liters a day, and this helps her support her family. Violet also practices crop farming, but she has not been making good profits because of poor farming implements, and that is why she is kindly seeking a loan to buy farm implements. Through the loan, she will be able to buy high quality seeds, good fertilizer and pesticides that she will use to greatly improve her crop production. Modern farming requires the use of modern techniques, and therefore, using high quality seeds will assure her of a bumper harvest and hence, increased profit levels.
