Bahati, 37, is married and from Tiribe, a suburban area on the southern coast of Kenya. She’s blessed with six children. Bahati is very hardworking and has her own grocery store, a business she has run for over 10 years. Her business started out with little capital but the good customer service she provides has led to its growth.

She requests a loan to buy supplies for her store at wholesale prices to meet customer demand, increase sales and as a result, her income. She wants to buy flour, rice, sugar, and other fast-selling goods. She’s grateful for the opportunity she’s getting because it will be of much help for her to continue growing.
