This is 43-year-old Bahati. She is widowed and has eight children, six of whom are in school.
In 2000, Bahati established her butcher business. She began her business because she wants to support her children’s education. This business is her only source of income. Working 7 days a week and 10 hours a day, she earns about KES 15,000 every month from this business.
She would like a loan in the amount of KES 30,000. Bahati requires a loan in order to buy more meat for sale. She hopes that this loan will enable her to increase her monthly profits.
In the future, Bahati plans to open other butcher shops.
