Tatu is a 55-year-old married woman. She has 5 children whose ages range from 20 to 35 years. She describes herself to be an honest woman.
Tatu operates a retail stall where she sells water. She has been involved in this business for 5 years. Her business is located in a viable business location and her primary customers are local residents. She describes her biggest business challenge to be insufficient funds for improving the business. She will use the loan of 120,000 Kenya shillings (KES) to buy iron sheets for the completion of the retail store for selling water to the local residents.
Tatu has requested three previous loans, for which she managed to pay all the amount owed. Her business goal is to venture into the business of running a real estate housing provision within 5 years. She hopes that in the future, she will improve the living standards of people by providing clean water to them.
