Rose Wambui is excited at the prospects of teaching her daughters the advantages of being an empowered woman, by her own example. The mother of four runs a very busy kiosk in Tayari village whose fast moving household goods are in high demand among the villagers.
Her husband is a business man in Nyahururu and caters for the school fees needs of their two children who are still in school. Rose on the other hand provides for all the domestic expenditure and the business’ needs.
Proceeds from her kiosk also facilitate her contributions to the various women self help groups which she is a member of. These groups have enabled her to buy property and be part of their development projects.
In addition, she engages in large scale maize farming with her husband, which upon harvesting, they sell on wholesale basis to market traders in Molo and its environs. Their combined efforts have enabled them to buy land and build their own home in which they live in, in Tayari village. Her hard work and persistent spirit is a motivation for her friends and other women in the area, who she gladly and freely mentors.
She is seeking $100 from Moto Hope Micro-Lending to enable her to buy additional stock for her kiosk. She envisions expanding it to shop status soon for the demand and sales keep improving. Increased earnings from this kiosk she says will ensure that she engages in more profitable and self improving ventures, as well as allow her to bring more to the table.
