Unfortunately i got pregnant and my boy friend disowned me when i refused to abort. Being a young single mother .with no source of income ,i had to work extra hard to put food on the table.My parents were morally supportive,even though they didn't have the money.
I started selling dry fish to my fellow villages but it didint work since people could take fish on credit and fail to repay. I had to quickly get another viable option ,I was thinking of second hand cloths when members from Farm concern International visited our village. I was one of those who were thirsty for education and went for it.we were thought various benefits of farming and they even offered to give as a demonstration plot.I left the meeting rich in ideas but short of capital. I mobilized the little resources I had and started growing traditional African vegetables in a quarter plot that I had,the investment did not disappoint. I reinvested the money into the farm ,and I now own 3/4 acre farm and wishing to expand it to 3acres.
I have one child he is four years old she still does not know what she wants to be but I am working round the clock to let her grow in an environment that would be conducive to nurture her dreams.
I grow vegetables ,kale's,capsicum, traditional vegetables and cabbages depending on the season and sell them in the neighboring school and sell the surplus to the nearby market. the demand for vegetables is high due to rising population.
