A loan of $475 helped to buy pesticides for her corn and wheat crops.

Olimbi's story

Olimbi is 37 and has three children who are 13, 11 and 9 years old. Corn and wheat are what her focus has been on during the past 20 years. She has been selling the corn to the local primitive mills and the wheat to bakeries.

Olimbi plants other veggies as well but in small quantities. “It is lots of work and my husband helps me, otherwise, I would not be able to do it all on my own. It is physical work…, “she sighed. “Sometimes in the beginning of spring, when our plants are still very small, rain goes on for long time and literally, it damages the crops. Whatever we had invested in goes in vain,” Olimbi said.
