As Maximlla Nyongesa graduates from our first "small farm business training" program, we wish to share her inspiring story.
Barely in her twenties, Maximilla is the youngest of her siblings and the only one providing care for her handicapped mother. A diligent planner, she launched a kale-and-spinach horticulture business as part of our program and then reinvested her venture's proceeds to diversify into rearing layer hens and goats. From her farm income Maximilla is now able to pay her own way through college at Sigalagala Technical Training Institute, where she is working toward a Certificate in General Agriculture. She hopes that with advanced training she will one day make a name and a better living for herself as a commercial farmer. Maximilla, we salute you for your hard work and for being a true role model to so many young women in the Kakamega community!
