Ruth is 48 years old and she is from Nakuru. She is married to Francis and they are blessed with two children, aged 28 and 14 years old.

Ruth is a farmer with a business she has been running for the last fourteen years. She has applied for her first loan of KES 33,400 from VisionFund Kenya, which she will use to buy a water storage tank for water collection during the rainy seasons. This will give her ample time to work on her farm for greater crop yields and profits.

Ruth's monthly income right now is KES 15,000. She plans to use the profits realized from her expanded business to pay back her loan to VisionFund Kenya and to educate one of her children who is still in school. In the future, she hopes to be a successful farmer.
