Mary is 30 years old and married with four children who are in school. She sells clothes such as lessos, children's clothes and ladies clothes in the market to earn a living. She has been in the business for ten years. She also runs a cafeteria to earn enough money to support her family and pay school fees for her children since the cost of living in the capital city is high. She describes herself as hardworking and determined.
Mary has joined a group in Faulu Kenya who meet on a weekly basis to save their money. She has benefited much from the group. She can access loans which the group guarantees and gets training offered by Faulu Kenya to the group. She has requested a loan of 20,000 Kenyan shillings from Faulu Kenya to add to her stock of clothes to sell.
