Naom M. N. is twenty-eight years old. She is married to a businessman and they have two children aged eight years and six years to whom they hope to give a quality education.
Naom’s business is located at Embakasi, an established and growing business area in Nairobi. Despite the fact that her business is located in Embakasi,she is served by Kitengela branch. SMEP's clients who have businesses in Embakasi are served from this branch. She has been selling tomatoes, cabbages, carrots and kale to the hotel operators and the local residents for the last seven years. She says that this business is good but at times the income she gets is not enough to take care of all her needs.
Naom is using her loan of Kes 40,000 to buy potatoes and carrots to expand her business. She hopes to become a wholesale business in future. She is very jovial and respectful.
