Amina is married and has one child who attends school. She lives in Likoni, Mombasa where she works at her green grocery shop. For the past two years, she’s been selling vegetables, potatoes, and onions to support her home.

She is currently applying for a Kiva loan because she wants to strengthen her business more each time and plans to use this loan to buy sacks of potatoes, vegetables, onions, and fruit at a much more special price than usual because she has the capacity to buy at wholesale prices with her Kiva loan which will make the investment successful. This is why she’s very competitive when she sells the produce and earns more each time.
