Hellen is a merchant. She has two daughters. She is married, and she lives in Kisauni in Mombasa municipality.
Hellen has been making and selling doughnuts, cakes, and breads for more than two years. Her business is located in her home, and she sells her products door to door. She thinks that her major advantage is that her products have a special flavor, and in addition to that, she is a friendly person who gets on well with other people. This helps her to make sales.
Her dream is to have a bigger bakery and her own home since they rent the place where they live. The loan that Hellen is requesting is needed to buy flour, oil, sugar, butter and other ingredients to make doughnuts, cakes, and breads. With the help of this loan, she will be able to generate earnings and cover her children's education. She will also help her husband with the financial upkeep of the household.
