Mariapia, 32, sells clothes door to door. In addition, she manages a motorcycle taxi which earns her a good income. This young, hardworking woman lives in Likoni in a rental house. Her spouse is a primary school teacher and together they are blessed with three children.
She’s been in this business for seven years now and does very well. She sells different fashions of clothes; whatever the customer requests.
Mariapia comments that her greatest problem is theft of her products. The loan she’s asking for is to buy bundles of clothes for sale. In the future she’d like to open a boutique. She also hopes to ensure her children are educated.
