Euniece Nduta Mwangi and her husband have practiced farming for the last ten years raising a living for their family from their farming proceeds. They are about to harvest maize from their two acres of land which they will combine with the amounts they intend to purchase from other small holder farmers to provide enough stock for sale. They sell the maize to wholesalers in Kitale town as well as large scale brokers who buy directly from farmers in the villages.
Euniece Nduta owns two dairy cows from which she sells milk to milk vendors who buy from her homestead as well as her neighbors. The proceeds from her dairy and maize sales are what enable them to pay for the school fess of their five school going children.
Her first loan from Moto Hope Micro-Lending of $200 enabled her to purchase sheep which after multiplying she sold off to buy one of their two dairy cattle. Dairy farming has been very rewarding for Euniece as she has quickly won to her trade most of the villagers in her neighborhood. She does not compromise on health and hygiene when handling the milk and her customers love the good quality milk she sells to them.
Euniece is seeking $500 to purchase another dairy cow so as to increase her dairy stock and improve her sales. With the additional cow to her herd, she says she will be in a position to sell at least 30litres of milk per day earning at least $12 daily and $360 every month. She envisions improved welfare for her family for she will be able to provide them with all their basic needs as well as a little comfort.
