Jane Mutala

Jane is known in the Kalawani village as a one of the best poultry farmers and the starter of one of the Mifuko's largest women weaving group with 116 members. She is also a farmer of poultry, oranges, lemons and cow peas. Jane learned the skill of weaving baskets when she was 18 years old; she weaves one basket a week and earns one thousand five hundred Kenyan Shillings a month. She uses her incomes specifically to buy feeds for her chicken. Jane is happy to work with Mifuko because Mifuko helped build an eco-toilet in her home and from that she gets manure for her farm, also they got her a water tank. The most important thing to Jane in her life is having a healthy life. Her favorite meal is githeri, kales and ugali.
