Franciscar, 36, is married with three children, aged between four and 11 years. She describes herself as a calm and respectful woman. She operates a kale farm, a business she has been involved in for three years and employing two staff members. Her business is located near a busy market in her home town and her primary customers are business people from the market. She describes her biggest business challenge to be the failure of crops to sprout before maturity.
Franciscar will use the loan of 20,000 Kenyan Shillings to buy crops for sowing. Her business goal is to venture into a grocery retail shop business within five years. She hopes that in the future she will be a supplier of kale.
