Halima is from Likoni, Mombasa. She is married and has two children. She tells us that she is a saleswoman and also owns a store in the small town of Likoni where she sells all kinds of men's and women's clothing. She lives in her own home and sells her products throughout the village. She tells us that she has been in this business for four years and so she already has some experience.
Halima is requesting this loan to invest in her business because she would like to buy more garments and thereby have a wider variety to sell to her customers. She is grateful to Yehu Microfinance and Kiva for the opportunity she is receiving.
