Milka's story

Milka J. T. is a 30-year-old lady who is married to Abraham T.. They have three children. She lives in Kaiboi, where she does tea farming and plants short seasonal crops like maize and beans. She also practices dairy farming and sells the milk to Kenya Cooperative Creameries, a milk-processing factory in Kenya.

Milka was introduced to KADET by a women's group that consisted of some of her customers. She has applied for a loan, which she will use to prepare her 5 acres for planting maize and beans, to start poultry farming and to buy two more dairy cows.

Milka plans to become independent and generate more income from her different businesses so that she can pay school fees for her children.
