Ruth's story

Ruth is a resident of Likoni, Kenya. She has been a farmer for about nine years. She is a mother of three children and was introduced to Milango by her friends to access credit. She has been carrying of the farming for subsistence, though she sells the extra to obtain some income. Ruth is applying for a loan of 20,000 Kenya to purchase fertilizers and seedlings for the rainy season. She also intends to save the extra income obtained from this loan. Her future ambition is to sell off the farm produce and open a whole sale shop in the near future. The main challenge facing the business is seasonal weather; there is no guarantee in the rainfall pattern and she mainly relies on the rainfall.
