Sikweli is 51 years old and has two children. She is a married mother and lives in a neighborhood in the town of Msambweni, Kenya, with her children and husband.

This is her first loan and she is requesting 30,000 KES so that she can restock her business with more bundles of firewood. This will improve her sales and her earnings. Her goals are to grow her business so that she can help her children with their studies and to have a better standard of living.
