Njira is 45 years old, married, and has eight children. In order to generate the income that her household needs, she has a kiosk where she sells consumer products, which she has been doing for three years. Her customers know her and her sales have been improving.
Njira is requesting a loan, which she will use to purchase flour, snacks, and soda. Thanks to this business she has been able to provide her children with a good quality of life. Nevertheless, the fact that she has supported her family has meant that financial problems persist in her household. Consequently she works hard every day with the goal of overcoming these problems. Her greatest dream is that her children have the possibility to succeed. She aspires to be able to overcome her financial difficulties and achieve a better quality of life at home with her children.
