Mwanamisi is originally from the town of Likoni where most of the women work selling fried fish. She makes and sells dumplings and green peas, a business she has run for the past two years. What she likes most about her business is when she has a lot of sales, as then she sells all her dumpling and green peas in just a few hours. Mwanamisi says that some of the characteristics needed to do her type of work are to be friendly, clean, and to have good seasonings.

Mwanamisi is asking for this loan in order to purchase more green peas, wheat flour, and cooking oil. She is thankful to Yehu for the help that they have given her to continue with her business and improve it.
