Am Eligah nyabuto from eldoret a region in the rift y valley parts of kenya, I was born in Nyanza province later transfer to rift y valley in search of employment.
I went to Kebirigo primary school, cardinal Otunga girls high school and Eldoret polytechnic.
After polytechnic i decided to hold back in Eldoret town and search for employment i late was employed as a cleaner at supermarket.
I later got married and joined my husband in farming we own a 6 acre piece of land were 2 acres is for crop farming and the rest for lease.
I love Eldoret and the culture of my husband i have learned kipsigis language though it was not easy but i can now speak both my language and husbands language in fluent.
I practice small scale farming for a living, i plant kale's, maize and cabbages for sell this season i have had issues with money and have not utilize my farm well.
I found a passion for farming after my neighbor bought a new lorry from sell of tomatoes this encouraged me so much. I opt to save enough capital and one day plant tomatoes as my neighbor is willing to show me the market place and customers.
On good plantation and harvest i make an average of 200 to 250 us dollars a month.
I put back my profits to the farm to cater for next plantation and support of family basic needs.
Given the loan of 203 us dollars am going to build a storage facility that will enable me store my farm produce,
This will cost me 195 us dollars and the materials i will buy is timber,nails,iron sheets,posts,door inches, and lab-our for the carpenters.
I incurred from a carpenter he gave me a list of materials and all the quotation that was 195 us dollars so with this loan i am going to fully build the store and pay my carpenters.
Once i have a store when i will harvest my produce will be in safe place waiting to sell at high price.
