Mbijiwe is 32 years old and a single mother of 3 children ages, 6 years and 5 months old twins. Her eldest child attends school. She is a farmer from Nkubu town in eastern Kenya. She has been farming for eight years and employs 4 farmhands. Her mixed farm produces milk, maize, beans and potatoes which are sold to the local market.

She has requested this loan of 47,700 KES from Juhudi Kilimo to purchase and insure a dairy cow.
