Mbeyu is married and has two children, ages 2 and 6. She has always wanted to provide them with a good education, and since her husband's income is not enough to provide the family with a good quality of life, Mbeyu decided to start working.

About four years ago, Mbeyu began selling consumer goods in a small kiosk in order to generate an income for her family's needs. Thanks to the increasing number of customers due to the good service and products she provides, Mbeyu is looking for a loan to buy more stock of soaps, detergents, flour and cooking oil. This will allow her to increase her inventory and offer better service to her customers.

In this way, Mbeyu will continue to increase her customer base and her business will continue to be a source of income. Because of this, her family can have a better standard of living and continue getting ahead.
