am 27yrs old and a sales and marketing in profesion from from meru technical training college.
my parents are farmers and they have brought up the whole family with the earnings from the farm. i love both my parents for the care they have offered me this far. may they live longer to see their grand childrens.
Am married to one ANTONY MUTHUGUMI MURAGA, and we are blessed with three lovely boys. the last borns are indentical twins 10months old.
i started schooling at kiamweri primary school and there after joined gikurune high school up to form four. i did't do much well and so, i would later join meru technical college to take a sales and marketing course.
i met my husband in a very stranger way when one sunday i was looking for a place to charge my phone after my form four exam. i thank GOD that when i visited a shop where he was working, he said to me that he has seen me and fallen in love with me. having gone to the shop as a group of three girls. i was surprised to not that he had the courage to say he has fallen in love with me in the presence of others. i remember him offering to buy us lunch but when we went to the hotel, i turned him down and took a soda but the rest accepted the offer. he late offered to take me home just to know my home and he won this.
little did i know the man was serious.
a pround he has remained to be a loving man to date. i thank him for introducing me to this organizition and wish to join him in shaping our family future.
after meeting with antony, i late had to join a college one year later. he was so supportive till i completed my course. i didn't secure an employment but he would use all his earnings to maka sure i had anything i needed.after looking for job for some time, i loosed hope and joined him back home where we started farming.this is how we earned our living before he got a shop in nairobi to start a business.
i refused to move to nairobi and choosed to remain at home to take care of the establishments we had started with him.
here at home. we have a tea farm and a shamba where i grow 3months crops,rabbits and a cow. these have been instrumental to our family and i choosed to start take care of them as my business.
with his support, i have been doing my best to see that they are economicaly vaiable.
this is my source of income and this is where i will get monie to pay back the loan from.
i look forward to improve the productability of this farm to the best of my abilities to see that it become a profitable family business.we have a big farm and i hope one day i will wakeup to see it covered with much profitable crops.
this is how i will use my first loan of $140.
