Bahati is from the city of Mombasa. She’s the mother of two children, both of whom attend school. She’s married and is a merchant by trade, selling clothing from a small store set up in her home. She started this business with the help from her husband. Her husband is employed in one of the government institutions in the city. They work together to get their family ahead.
Bahati will use the money from this loan to buy 'khangas' (a type of fabric) and other clothing materials for sale. This is the type of merchandise she sells and she needs to stock her store. Her plans include expanding her store and adding new styles and sizes of clothing. Her goal is to prepare her children to become professionals; even as she aspires opening a boutique.
