About Me

Hello, am Pacifica matoke, am 52 years old I reside in Kisii County. Am a house wife who mostly handles household chores but as part of earning extra income I managed a farm where I have planted bananas that I harvest twice per a month.
am blessed with two sons and the most money I generate from the farm helps to pay for their education.

My Business

My work mostly is with the my compound, as part of Making myself useful I started to plant bananas in the year 2013, at the moment I harvest bananas twice a month then sell them at a wholesale price to guys who take them to the city to sell.
I harvest 20 bananas per a harvest, then I sell at a wholesale price of KES 250 so in a harvest I make KES 5000, in a month I make at least KES 10000 from the bananas.
I use KES 100 to weed the farm and the rest I use it to for my sons' school fees and other expenses at home.
