Mwanachande is 25 years old and lives with her two children. She is single and very hardworking, and she strives to get ahead. She has been buying and selling fish for two years. Her mother motivated her because she herself had always been engaged in this business.

Mwanachande sells her fish at the market and she says that she has already established a good client base. Her goal is to use the loan to buy more stock of fish and cooking oil.

She hopes to expand her business. Expanding her business and earning more profit will provide her family with a better life.

Mwanachande’s dream is to have a stall in the market since currently she is a street vender. She also wants to give her children an education so that they can have a better future.
