Cecilia is 59 years old, from Nyahururu. She is married to Charles who is a businessman and, together, they are blessed with two children who are now adults, 25 and 23 years old.

Cecilia owns a general store where she sells cereals, like beans, maize, greengrams, wheat, and other items, like cooking fat, sugar, flour, and rice. To be able to add more stocks of these items, Cecilia has applied for a loan of KES 60,000 from Kenya Agency for Development of Enterprise and Technology (KADET), which is her third one.

From her general store, she makes a monthly income of KES 30,000 and she hopes to use the anticipated profits from her expanded business to start another business, by buying a dairy cow.

Her hopes and dreams for her future business and family are to be financially stable and to be able to buy a pickup truck for transporting her cereals to other markets.
