Chizi, 37, is a married woman who has seven children between the ages of four and 17 years. She is struggling to ensure that she provides for them. For the past two years, Chizi has been busy in her kiosk, selling goods such as flour and beverages. Her spouse is a farmer and he sells his farm products from home and at the market. Chizi has a desire to educate her children. Her kiosk stock has gone down and she does not have sufficient funds to restock it. She is therefore requesting a loan in the amount of KES 20,000 to buy more stock of maize flour, salt, and other fast-selling goods, such as sweets and juice. She hopes to increase her monthly income and be able to provide quality of life for her family.
