Bahati lives with her three children in Kwale town. There she sells charcoal wholesale to restaurant operators. She also sells farm produce like green vegetables, tomatoes, and potatoes.

Her goal for the future is to have a wholesale outlet and a warehouse to distribute to other vendors. Right now, she is applying for a micro-loan, the second financial loan she's made with the Yehu Microfinance Trust, with which she will buy sacks of charcoal for resale. She intends to use these products to widen her clientele and make greater sales. As this happens, her dream is to acquire a vehicle for a transport business and guarantee a successful future for her children.
