Dama, 53, lives with her common-law husband and their children in the rural area of Kaloleni.
She has been selling charcoal at the market for five years. She is satisfied with this way of earning an income to contribute to her household finances. She is currently requesting a loan of 50,000 KES, which she plans to invest in the purchase of more sacks of charcoal to sell.
With the investment she will make, Dama hopes to satisfy the demands of her customers, increase her sales, and improve her earnings so that she can have economic growth.
