Rose is a 61-year-old married woman. She has 10 children with ages ranging from 15 years to 39 years. She describes herself as quiet and likes to share ideas. She operates a stall where she sells bananas, mangoes, sugar cane, cassava and others. She has been involved in this business for four years. Her business is located in a busy shopping centre.
Rose describes her biggest business challenge to be financial constraints. She will use the Kes 10,000 loan to add stock of cassava, sugar cane and other fruit. Her business goal is to grow her business into wholesale within five years. She hopes that in the future, she will educate her last-born child at the university.
