Mwanaija, 40 years of age, lives with her six children in the community of Shizazi, located in Msambweni, in the province of Coast, Kenya. Mwanaija owns a food stall which supplies the local community with daily basic foods. She noticed that her business has been slowly growing and demand for more dishes is getting stronger. Now that her customers feel satisfied with her services, they are requesting a wider range of dishes.
Mwanaija is seeking a loan of KES 50,000 to purchase ingredients such as food flavor, flour, sugar, etc. to satisfy customer demand. With this loan, she hopes to better herself economically and personally. She also notes that, thanks to these types of credit organizations, she is able to achieve her goals.
