Fatuma is married and has an adult son who is independent. She lives in her own house that has neither electricity nor piped water. She has been selling kerosene from home. Her main customers are family members, friends and neighbors in the area. Thanks to this business the quality of life in her home has improved considerably since she’s been able to sustain herself.
Because her sales are good, Fatuma needs a loan to buy gallons of kerosene for resale. In this way she will be able to meet customer demand and continue generating income for her home that will give her the opportunity of having a better quality of life at home and better opportunities for economic progress.
