Mary is 62 years old. She is married, and God has blessed them with five children, who are all above the age of 18, although. She stays with her two grandchildren, who are below the age of 18 years.

She practices poultry farming. She has been in the business for six years and is now earning an average income of KES. 35,000 per month. However, she has applied for her second loan from VisionFund Kenya to enable her to buy more chicks, vaccines, and feed.
