For about thirty years  Christopher Wambua has been known as an okra farmer consulted by colleagues from Kiboko, Makueni County and beyond. From his acre farm, he harvests 300kg three times a week, translating to 900kg a week and retailing at Sh70 a kilo to earn Sh63,000 a week. After deducting input and farm labour costs of around Sh20,000, he pockets Sh43,000 a week.
