Asha is 30 years old. She lives in a suburban neighborhood in Msambweni with her husband and six children. For the last 10 years, she’s been running her own fruit and vegetables business, selling produce from her home where she has a small stall. Asha's business is profitable and she contributes her earnings to cover the family's expenses. She sells cabbages, tomatoes, kale, and other products. All of her products are fresh which is why customers prefer her.
Asha is requesting a loan to buy fresh fruits and vegetables to keep her business well-stocked with a good variety so that her sales will increase. Her goal is to always grow her business to have a better standard of living.
