Scolah is an ever-smiling rural farmer in Kenyenya, Kenya, an area known for producing long-distance runners who have broken major world records. She is blessed with two children, and has been practicing mixed farming for the past ten years. On her farm, she grows maize and keeps a dairy cow and poultry. She sells milk, eggs, and maize. To meet her expenses and provide the best for her family, she often engages in small personal businesses to make extra money. But farming gives her a great sense of satisfaction despite meager earnings. She says, “I enjoy it most when I see customers come back for my products because it shows me that I am meeting their needs!”

Scolah is seeking a new loan to buy another dairy cow and is planning to become a full-fledged dairy farmer. Her future plan is to construct a zero-grazing unit. That way, she can use the grazing field to plant fodder and prepare silage. With this loan, Scolah is going to grow into a very successful dairy farmer. All she wants is for her family to enjoy the abundance of life and good health.
