David Murage is a hardworking passionate farmer with close to six acres of land covered with green healthy crop. He has toiled hard for the last fifteen years and the fruits of his sweat earn him and his family of four children and a wife a comfortable living. His green space prides itself in four acres of maize and one acre of tea. His cash crops have done quite well over the years and earned him trust and the undivided loyalty of his large scale buyers.
David would like to expand his vegetable farming to be large scale as well. He currently sells to market vendors but would like to expand his clientele. The $100 that he seeks from MHML will go towards all the inputs and labor he needs on his vegetable farm of tomatoes, cabbages and collard greens. He will in turn increase his produce to meet the demand he predicts he will face by the time his vegetables are ready for harvest.
He is driven by his passion for farming and motivated by the fact that his produce promote food security and create employment for the few young people and women that he employs in the various stages of his farming; ploughing, planting, weeding, harvest and supplying.
