Fatuma is a married woman with 5 children, all of whom attend school. She owns a house that has electricity and piped water. Her greatest monthly expense is school fees.

For the past 1 year, she has operated a video cafe business. Her potential customers are neighbours and passersby. In addition, she also operates a retail shop business which contributes to her other source of income. Her major challenge is seasonality. During the rainy season low numbers of customer turn up.
