Siporah Gitura
Siporah Gitura K. is 53 years old. She is married to John K. and a mother of two school-going children. Siporah is a farmer and she does the farming on her own piece of land which she has been doing for the last seven years.

She learned about KADET from other women in a group already registered with KADET. This will be her first loan which she is planning to spend to prepare land for potato planting. Potatoes have been doing well in her area due to good climatic conditions. She hopes to use the profit from the proceeds of this loan to expand her farming activity from small-scale to commercial farming.

Siporah's dream is to do large-scale farming and attain financial independence. She is a hard-working woman who is determined to achieve her goals.
