Damaris is a 65-year-old widowed woman. She has three children. She describes herself to be a God-fearing woman.

She operates a retail business where she sells molasses. She has been involved in this business for seven years. Her business is located within a dry area and her primary customers are dairy farmers.

She describes her biggest business challenge to be a shortage of molasses during the rainy season due to impassible roads to her business premises.

Damaris will use the Kes 100,000 loan to buy more molasses for resale. Her business goal is to be a wholesale distributor of molasses within five years.

She hopes that in the future she will buy a motorbike with the profits generated.
