This is 48-year-old Mwanaisha. She is married and has five children. The business started to be self reliant and to meet her personal needs. Working 6 days a week and 10 hours a day, she earns about 12,000 KES every month from this business.

She would like a loan for the amount of 10,000 KES. Mwanaisha has already received and successfully repaid two loans and now requires a new loan in order to buy additional groceries such as tomatoes, cabbages, kales, potatoes, etc. She hopes that this loan will enable her to increase her monthly profits by approximately 10%. In the future, Mwanaisha plans to improve on the store and expand to open a kiosk.
