Ruth is a 25-year-old single mother of a 6-year-old child. She runs an M-pesa shop (a mobile phone-based money transfer service), a business she ventured into two years ago, and earns a monthly income of KES 25,000.
She has requested a second loan of KES 60,000 to add more float to her M-pesa business. The profit she earns from this business will help her open another branch.
Her dream is to see her business prosper as well as to educate her child.
